We are fascinated by oxidoreductases. We love fancy enzymes, colorful cofactors, spectacular electron transfer events and complex catalytic mechanisms. To pursue our goals we work together with wonderful collaborators – experts in their fields – and enjoy the many facets of nature. We believe in hard work and strict science, we share our results with collaborators,and we work as a team and have fun. We are committed to our scientific home – BOKU – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna – and our funding agencies to
reach their goals: to improve science and our society.
The working group Biocatalysis and Biosensors studies everything that interests us: fungi, enzymes, screening techniques, homologous and heterologous protein expression, protein purification, biochemical characterization of enzymes, steady-state kinetics, transient kinetics, electrochemical methods, enzyme applications in biocatalytic processes, process development, and enzyme applications in biosensors and biofuel cells.
