Wear, corrosion, material fatigue - these signs of degradation are common to most materials. This makes it all the more important to detect damage early, preferably on the micro scale. Magnetic test methods are often used for this purpose, which was previously impossible with non-magnetic s ... more

Roland Ulber, born in 1968, studied chemistry at the University of Hanover. He did his doctoral thesis at the Institute of Biochemistry at the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and at the Institute of Technical Chemistry at the University of Hanover and received his doctorate in 1996 on the optimization of sensor systems for biotechnology. In 2002 he habilitated in "Technical Chemistry" at the University of Hanover. Since 2004 he has been Professor of Bioprocess Engineering at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. He declined calls for the W3 professorship for Technical Biochemistry at the Technical University of Braunschweig (2006) and the Technical University of Munich (2015).
At the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, he played a major role in setting up the new course of studies in bio- and environmental process engineering. This course was transferred to the new study concept Bio- and Chemical Engineering (http://www.bci-kl.de) in the winter semester 2011/2012. After rejecting the call to the Technical University of Braunschweig, he further expanded the field of bioprocess engineering at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. Roland Ulber is, among other things, a member of DECHEMA's Biotechnology Community, of which he is currently Chairman.
His research focuses on white (industrial) and marine biotechnology, biocatalysis and the development of downstream processes.
