Karl Persson

Post doc at Industrial Biotechnology

Karl Persson joined the Division of Industrial Biotechnology in July 2021 as a postdoctoral researcher. His research focuses on characterising “non-conventional” wild yeasts to identify traits desired by the biotechnology industry. His project aims to identify non-conventional yeasts that can efficiently metabolise different carbohydrates that are abundant in plant biomass. Additionally, he studies the resilience of non-conventional yeasts to a wide array of industrial stressors and inhibitors. The long term aim of his research is to develop more efficient and tolerant yeast strains for future biorefineries while advancing our knowledge of carbohydrate utilisation and inhibitor tolerance.
