Prof. Dr. Brian Gibson übernimmt das Fachgebiet Brauwesen


Brian Gibson, before joining TU Berlin as the VLB-endowed Chair of Brewing and Beverage Technology was employed as a Principal Scientist at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Ltd, where he was responsible for research and industry brewing projects, and generally directing the brewing research activities. He also
holds a Docent position at University of Helsinki.
His main research focus is brewing yeast biology and its impact on fermentation and beer quality. Topics of interest include improvement of yeast performance through hybridization or adaptive evolution, as well as optimization of process conditions. Underlying mechanisms (genetic, molecular, physiological) that govern yeast performance are a particular interest. A number of innovations resulting from the research have been applied industrially.

Brian, in addition to working on beer, has carried out research on a range of fermentation systems including wine, cider, kombucha, and sourdough bread. He has published 60 peer-reviewed articles on topics related to
brewing, and has successfully supervised multiple PhD, MSc, and BSc-level research projects. He was awarded his PhD from UCD, Dublin, Ireland in 2004, after which he carried out research at Oxford Brookes University and University of Nottingham, before moving to VTT.

At TU Berlin, Brian will oversee the updating of Brewing and Beverage Technology course material, establish a well-equipped laboratory for brewing yeast and fermentation research, and will promote the university as a attractive research partner for the brewing and beverage industry.
