Caroline Paul Group


Caroline E. Paul received her Honours BSc and MSc degrees in Biological Chemistry at the University of Toronto with Prof. M. Nitz, and her PhD degree at the University of Oviedo in the group of Prof. V. Gotor with Prof. V. Gotor-Fernández and Prof. I. Lavandera within the EU project BIOTRAINS.

After postdoctoral work as a Marie Curie Fellow with Prof. F. Hollmann (TU Delft), she obtained a NWO VENI grant and carried out her research interests on biomimetic cofactors for oxidoreductases at Wageningen University.

In 2018 she became Assitant Professor, and in 2023 Associate Professor in Biocatalysis in the Department of Biotechnology at TU Delft.
