Markus Maier


My name is Markus Maier, in May 2013 I graduated in Process and Chemical Engineering at University of Technology in Graz (Austria). Since end of June 2013, I’m an early stage researcher in the DoHip Project which is funded by the Marie Curie Actions – Research Fellowship Program. I’m doing my PhD at Fraunhofer UMSICHT in Oberhausen (Germany). The field of my research focuses on sustainable tanning of leather, which includes the search and analytics of new tanning agents and the investigation of properties of tanned leather under the supervision of Prof. Eckhard Weidner and Manfred Renner.
