DASGIP claims itself to know the users of the DASGIP products and their specific requirements for various applications very well. Here, DASGIP team would like to introduce to some of our valued customers - or rather: let them introduce themselves by answering five questions - about themselves, their employer and current challenges for the market they work for.Dr. Michael Maurer, lector and scientist at the University of Applied Sciences Vienna
Where and how did you spend your last vacation?
In company with my partner I was on a three week backpacker trip trough Finland, Estonia and St. Petersburg. It was a fascinating trip, full of various impressions. We started in Finland, a natural paradise with dreamlike landscapes, lakes and forests. St. Petersburg was a contrast. There we enjoyed the sights and cultural life before we leaped into the Middle Ages by exploring the old town of Tallinn. During the final tour around Estonia we got known the country as an ambitious EU Member State with a beautiful nature.
What do you especially like about your job?I am lector and scientist in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Applied Sciences, FH Campus, in Vienna. Our educational program as well as the applied research is carried out in cooperation with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna. Thus, I fill in two areas of responsibility. First of all I give our students theoretically and practically understanding of bioprocess technology. On the other hand I supervise parts of our research projects. Within our research cooperation we are optimizing microbial strains for the production of recombinant proteins. In the field of white biotechnology we are working on an increased production of low-molecular organic substances. Additionally, we are interested in the production processes themselves, that’s why we also focus monitoring and optimization. For me, the particular challenge and the specific attraction of my work is the chance to directly influence the educational program with newest scientific findings.
