Academic Career and Research Areas
Prof. Steinhoff-Wagner´s (*1982) field of research is based on a holistic approach and deals with biological, technical and organizational processes, in particular the recording and evaluation of nutrient cycles from the production of feed to the environmental impact of excretions. It addresses the challenges for more sustainable feed and food production across the entire value chain, particularly taking into account livestock welfare and consumer safety.
Julia Steinhoff-Wagner studied agricultural sciences at the Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel, completed her doctoral thesis at the Leibniz Institute for Farm Animal Biology in Dummerstorf and worked as a postdoc at the USDA/ARS Children's Nutrition Research Center in Houston, Texas. Back in Germany, she habilitated in the field of nutritional physiology and health management at the agricultural faculty of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn.
