G (Giuseppe) Olivieri PhD


Giuseppe is a Lecturer in the Bioprocess Engineering Group. He is from Napoli in the South of Italy, the city in which he also has studied Chemical Engineering till his PhD in Industrial Biotechnology in 2004 . Then he has continued to work at the University of Napoli "Federico" as Assistant Professor for 9 years.

Suddenly he came in Nederland, the first time as Assistant Professor in Microalgal Biorefinery at BPE group in WUR in 2013 and then, after other two years more in Italy, again back in WUR in 2017, but now as full-time lecturer in Bioprocess Engineering.

Before diving deeply in teaching, his research interests were in the application of Bioprocess Engineering Fundamentals to design new industrial process and to develop novel and biobased product.

Now, spread over various study programs (BSc and MSc Biotechnology, MSc Biobased Science and MSc Water Technology), Giuseppe currently coordinates three courses, and actively participate as lecturer in other four courses... 

In his free-time, Giuseppe tries to play piano, maybe because he loves classical musica... but he has still to obtain satisfacting results.

At the same time Giuseppe has also a very good knowledge and passion for the history of cinema.
