In 2020, Dr. Steffen Roth joined the innovation field of Bioinspired Chemistry at the Fraunhofer IGB, Straubing branch . After his studies in applied chemistry, he completed his dissertation at Fraunhofer IGB in cooperation with the TU Munich (Chair of Prof. V. Sieber) between 2015 and 2020 as a doctoral scholarship holder of the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU). During this time, the focus of his work was on the provision of sustainable monomers using biotechnological processes and their polymerization.
Since 2021, he is leading the research activities in the field of Bioorganic Chemistry, with a particular interest in the interface between chemistry and biology. Combining both research areas using chemo-enzymatic approaches elucidates sustainable solutions for synthesis and novel materials.
