Project Roles: Member Supervisory Board
Heike Lorenz is head of the crystallization research team at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems and apl. Professor at the Otto von Guericke University (OvGU) in Magdeburg/Germany. She obtained a Diploma in Chemistry from Freiberg University of Mining and Technology and completed her PhD and Habilitation at Magdeburg University. After a research stay at the International Flame Research Foundation (IFRF) in Ijmuiden/The Netherlands she became Senior Scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg within the Dept. of Physical and Chemical Foundations of Process Engineering (1998). She was Chair of Board Crystallization of Dechema/VDI-GVC’s ProcessNet (2009-2014) and is German Delegate to the EFCE Working Party on Crystallization since 2015.
Main research interests focus on fundamentals and applications of crystallization and the analytical tools important in this connection.
