Personal profile

Research profile

Inga studied in the Bachelor and Master programme “Water Science: Chemistry, Analytics, Microbiology” at the University Duisburg-Essen, Germany. In parallel to her studies, she joined as a student assistant the group of Aquatic Biotechnology, in the Biofilm Centre and the group of Organic Functional Materials of the Faculty of Physics. Using an interdisciplinary approach combining physics, analytical and microbiological tools, Inga worked on scalable photobioreactors for algae for her bachelor’s thesis and on the nutrition optimization of thermophilic and halophilic cyanobacteria for her master’s thesis. Inga then moved to Helgoland to conduct her PhD project “It`s all about the base - Marine biofilms in the plastic age” at the Alfred-Wegener-Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research within the international Ph.D. graduate program of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology. There, she developed strong skills in experimentation with microbial marine biofilms using culture dependent and independent tools. Currently, Inga is employed as a Postdoc at the University Aalborg, Denmark and works on the quantification and qualification of microplastics in marine and drinking waters.
