By these recruitments, WWSC is now strengthening the competence in biotechnology processes and lignin valorisation.

Amparo Jimenez Quero, Assistant Professor at the Division of Industrial Biotechnology at Chalmers, specialises in the valorisation and characterization of biomass and green extraction methods. She also works with filamentous fungi as a biotechnological tool and for biocomposite production.

Liyang Liu, Assistant Professor at the Division of Chemical Engineering at Chalmers, works with understanding the structural properties of lignin, to create, among other things, eco-friendly polymeric foams, strong adhesives, nanocomposite, and 3D Printing inks.

“We are extremely pleased to have recruited a new generation of highly promising researchers to Chalmers and WWSC. They will bring exciting new expertise and can contribute to many interesting research collaborations,” says Professor Lisbeth Olsson, co-director of WWSC.
