David Moreno

Forskare at Department of Biology and Biological Engineering, Industrial Biotechnology

Antonio David Moreno is postdoctoral researcher at Industrial Biotechnology group at Chalmers since January 2014. He obtained his PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). His thesis project was focused on the use of laccases as delignification and detoxification biocatalysts for improving lignocellulosic bioethanol production. Currently, he is working in the development of xylose-fermenting yeasts with potential applications in future biorefineries.
