Maria Hoppe, born in 1987, studied chemistry from 2007 to 2013 at the Free University of Berlin and the University of Amsterdam. From 2013 to 2018 she was a PhD student at the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV in the department Product Safety and Analytics. In 2018, she successfully completed her doctoral thesis “Oligomers in polyester-type food contact polymers: Identification and migration studies”, supervised by Professor Pim de Voogt, University of Amsterdam. Since then, Dr. Hoppe has been a research associate at the Fraunhofer IVV, where she continues her research.
The focus of Dr. Hoppe’s research is the identification and migration of substances in food, in particular of NIAS (non-intentionally added substances).
