Charilaos Xiros

Forskare at Chalmers, Biology and Biological Engineering, Industrial Biotechnology

Charis Xiros obtained his PhD on the evaluation of the enzymatic and microbial system of filamentous fungi for the bioconversion of agro-industrial by-products from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2009. From December 2009 until July 2011 he worked as a post doc researcher in the european research project “HYPE” (NTUA). His research includes: Bioconversion of agro-industrial residues, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, filamentous fungi, fermentation inhibitors, evolutionary engineering, lignocellulolytic enzymes such as cellulases, endoxylanases, arabinofuranosidases. He has been recruited as a postdoc scientist in Industrial Biotechnology group at Chalmers since October 2011.
