Scott Mazurkewich

Post doc at Chalmers, Biology and Biological Engineering, Industrial Biotechnology

Scott Mazurkewich joined the Division of Industrial Biotechnology in August 2016 as a postdoctoral researcher. He is investigating enzymes from strains of Bacteroidetes, strains which are known to degrade hemicellulose from a wide array of plant sources. The aim of project, which is supported by the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC), is to advance our knowledge about these important enzymes for the development of novel biomass utilization methods.
