Cecilia Geijer

Assistant Professor,
Biology and Biological Engineering, Industrial Biotechnology

Dr. Cecilia Geijer works as an Assistant Professor at the Division of Industrial Biotechnology. Her research focus is on developing yeast strains that can efficiently ferment all lignocellulosic sugars into sustainable biofuels and biochemicals in a future biorefinery. To understand how yeasts best can metabolize different sugars, she works with both industrial strains of the model organism S. cerevisiae as well as non-conventional yeast species with interesting biotechnological traits.
