Johan joined IBioIC in 2017 and supports the Centre and its members in a technical capacity, as well as managing funding activities.
He is an enzyme technology scientist by training and carried out his PhD at Lund University in Sweden, where he studied the mechanisms of enzymes hydrolysing pre-treated biomass into fermentable sugars.
Following his PhD, Johan joined the biotechnology company Novozymes where he led R&D partner collaborations and joint development activities with the aim to develop both enzyme products and enzyme application processes for improved feasibility of biomass bio-refineries. Johan relocated to Scotland in early 2016 and worked as a Project Manager for a medical device company.
