Denmark = Sustainable Energy

Madeline Hoey is currently studying at the University of Copenhagen through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. But why did she choose to come to Denmark in the first place?

She chose the University of Copenhagen because Copenhagen and Denmark is a leader in sustainable energy.

Madeline studies enzymes that are meant to break down plant material into sugars that can then be turned into biofuels.

“Copenhagen, Denmark is already a leader in sustainable energy”

- Madeline Hoey, Fulbright Student 2019/2020

More specifically she is focused on the enhancement of lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs) catalytic efficiency through the identification of novel electron donors. Such enzymes work with cellulases to improve the accessibility of fermentable sugars for the application of biofuel production.

And what better place to study that than in Copenhagen, Denmark.

In 2019/2020 Fulbright Denmark welcomes 8 American students and 3 American scholars to study, teach and do research at relevant universities in different parts of the country.
