Peter completed his professional education as an electrician in the field of solar energy, a BSc in Marine Biotechnology from the University of Applied Science in Bremerhaven (Germany), a MSc in Aquaculture from the University of Algarve in Faro (Portugal) and a PhD in Aquatic Biosciences from Nord University in Bodø (Norway). Peter is researcher at the GreenCoLab and represents the partner company Necton S.A. During his research career at different research institutions in Europe and Israel, he published multiple peer-reviewed articles on microalgae with a focus on light requirements for optimal growth and biomolecule induction. Being an algal biotechnologist, he has profound skills in experimental design, algal cultivation and photosynthetic measurements. Peter joined the GreenCoLab with the motivation to create jobs in the microalgal sector, advance R&D and develop new technologies that lead to an improved algal production at companies associated with the GreenCoLab. His main tasks are project elaboration, leading the AlgaSynTec workgroup, coordinating the ALGACYCLE and ALGAESOLUTIONS project as well as training students.
