PhD Project: Lipase investigation for specific tailoring of the structural triglycerides in plant-based oil and fat industry.

My project aims at producing and analyze the structure of candidate lipases which has the potential to be used in the plant-based oil and fat industry, with the purpose of specifically tailoring triglyceride to meet different purpose in the downstream food application. The goal is optimizing and evaluating the function of important determinants under industrial condition.

About Zehui

I am an industrial PhD in Division of Biotechnology LTH Lund University and AAK AB. Before moving to Sweden, I spent two years in Denmark doing my Master study at University of Copenhagen. I am from China and I also finish my bachelor study there, at Tianjin University. I have been always curious about the scientific phenomenon and actively find solutions when problem shows up, which probably the reason that pushed me become a PhD student. On the other hand, I like to work closely to the application, which made this project as a great opportunity for me.
