Researcher and Project Coordinator at the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences, IBG-2

Dr. Christina Kuchendorf (Biologist) is a researcher and project coordinator at the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences, IBG-2, at Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Germany. Having graduated with Geobotany and Computer Science, she started out in a joint field project in China and Jülich, and later in Montpellier, France, with the main topics of plant nutrition and resilience against flooding and other stress, and the development of sensors and measurement techniques to this regard – later expanding to soil and water microorganism performance in lab and field. Since 2013 and back in Jülich, algae are her focus; first with assessment of the added-value-chain of microalgal lipid production to jet fuel; and since 2016 with the coordination of the IBG-2 AlgaeScienceCenter with three pilot scale algae production facilities.
