Mrs Marlita Marlita
Former Excellence scholarship PhD student
I am a visiting PhD student, excellent fellow from Technical University of Liberec (TUL), Czech Republic. I obtained double master’s degrees in Agro industrial Biotechnology from Brawijaya University, Indonesia and Biotechnology from King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi, Thailand (2011). After graduated MSc, I worked in vaccine production, molecular engineering and recombinant protein production using animal cell culture in small scale and large scale- bioreactor, at Pilot Plant Development and Training Institute, Thailand (2011-2019). Before joined TUL, I also worked on study of anti-cancer properties of Indonesian herbs and COVID-19 drugs screening project at Animal Physiology, Structure and Development Lab, Faculty of Science, Brawijaya University, Indonesia (2019-2021). Currently, I am doing PhD in Environmental Engineering where my research is focused on the interaction of micro- and nanoplastics with microorganism in freshwater system. At the Department F.-A Forel, for environmental and aquatic sciences at the Faculty of Science, University of Geneva, I am investigating the interaction between nanoplastics with extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) of freshwater algae culture. On my free time, I enjoy reading, culinary travelling and playing badminton.
