Biomagic: Unleashing the Power of Plant Biotechnology, by Alexander Pomberger

  • I am a chemist&chemical engineer with a strong interdisciplinary interest in artificial intelligence/machine learning and research commercialization. During my PhD I work at the intersection of synthetic organic chemistry, lab automation via robotics and machine learning-based optimization in order to help tomorrow’s chemist to accelerate their workflows. I am application oriented, aiming to combine novel academic innovations with industrial challenges to finally present a solution ready for use in industry.
