Stefanie Malchow

Stefanie Malchow, born in 1989, earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree (M.Sc.) in biotechnology from the Berlin University of Applied Sciences (formerly Beuth University of Applied Sciences). After receiving her bachelor's degree, she worked as a research assistant at Versuchs- und Lehranstalt für Brauerei in Berlin (VLB) in the field of instrumental analysis. Upon completing her master's degree, she moved to the Department of Bioprocess Engineering and Applied Microbiology (BEAM). Since then, she has been responsible for generating, implementing and evaluating research projects. The focus of her research is as diverse as the range of services offered by VLB Berlin.


The focus of her current work is on optimizing fermentation processes for beverage production. In addition to industrial contract research, she also conducts non-university research projects. Beyond project development, her work includes designing and evaluating of experiments. In addition to beverage development, she is also involved in freeze-drying microorganisms and is responsible for process-accompanying HPLC analyses.
