Time flies by and almost half-way through the programme I’m brewing full-scale batches of beer with lentil malt addition and getting ready for my next stop at the University of Gent.
I am Magda Costa, Early Stage Researcher #5, PhD student at Ghent University. My topic focuses on the fermentation stage in the brewing process. I’ve been researching the methods used in assessing wort composition, how it influences yeast performance, and how they can be manipulated to improve beer quality.
My name is Rosa (made in Italy) and I’m excited of being part of the coolest PhD programme ever. I am glad we’re such a varied group, a funny cocktail of international characters; I am sure we will benefit as much from our diversity as from our common passion for beer.
My name is Tuur Mertens from Belgium. I’m the Early Stage Researcher #6, working in Berlin. As simple a statement it seems, as crazy a journey it has been; it all started with an spontaneous application. Check out my blog and stay tuned for more beer stories shaped in a glass.
Hello! My name is Celina Dugulin, I am the Early Stage Researcher #4 and I am currently doing my PhD at the beautiful University of Nottingham. What excites me the most about my project is, the aim of reducing the energy inputs required for malting.
