‘Advanced Separation Processes’ (Kaspereit lab)

Malte Kaspereit is heading the research group Advanced Separation Processes that develops efficient new process concepts for current separation problems from chemical, biotechnological, and pharmaceutical applications. Focus of his work is on developing powerful approaches for tackling particularly challenging mixture separations and purifications. For this, modern separation technologies are applied on the basis of preparative chromatography, adsorption from liquid and gas phase, membrane separations, as well as other and hybrid or reactive technologies.

More details on Malte Kaspereit and his research can be found on the website of the Advanced Separation Processes group.


Brief biography

Malte Kaspereit studied Process Engineering (Verfahrenstechnik) at Technical University Clausthal, Germany. After spending six months as a visiting scientist at Purdue University, USA, he joined in 2000 the Max Planck Institute (MPI) for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdburg, Germany. He received his PhD with honors (summa cum laude) in 2006 from Otto-von-Guericke University in Magdeburg under supervision of Andreas Seidel-Morgenstern. He then worked as a senior scientist at MPI Magdeburg. After his habilitation in 2011, he accepted the offered Professorship for Separation Science & Technology at Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany.

For his research, Malte Kaspereit received several awards. Among them is the Young lecturer’s award (Hochschullehrer-Nachwuchspreis) of Dechema, and the Award for Technology and Science (Technikwissenschaftlicher Preis) of the Berlin-Brandenburg
Academy of Sciences and Humanities
(Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften).
