Monika L. Eckenberg
Assistant Professor of Practice in Chemistry
Dr. Monika Eckenberg’s dissertation was on biosynthesis of Glycerinopyrin and Angucyclin antibiotics, and the subject of her postdoctoral position at Massachusetts Institute of Technology was studies on the mechanism of the enzyme Polyhydroxyalkanoate synthase.
Dr. Monika Eckenberg’s research interest include organic chemistry and biochemistry with the focus on Green Chemistry and the CO2 fixating strain Chloroflexus auranthiacus.
