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.

Malte Kaspereit is heading the research group Advanced Separation Processes that develops efficient new process concepts for challenging separation problems from chemical, biotechnological, and pharmaceutical applications.
