Svenja completed both her Bachelor and Master’s studies in Chemical Engineering at the Technical University of Berlin with study visits in Poland, Italy, Iran and Jordan. During her Bachelor thesis, she examined the potential of microemulsions as reaction system for a hydroxycarbonylation of 1-dodecene as part of the collaborative research project InPROMPT, whereas the Master thesis was undertaken in cooperation with the pharmaceutical and life science company Bayer and focused on a continuous, in-line sterilization of fermentation media. In 2020, Svenja started her joint PhD programme between the University of Adelaide (Australia) and the University of Nottingham with the goal to develop a microfluidic device that enables the production of customized designer-beverages in space, thereby improving health and well-being during space missions.
