Judit is a member within the Euro-MIC COST framework. This project is funded by the European Union and enables scientists to bridge knowledge and capabilities across countries and disciplines.

Summary of the experiences and competences of Judit

Judit Knisz has earned her PhD in biology in 2010. She currently works as a senior research scientist at the Faculty of Water Sciences, University of Public Service, Baja, Hungary. Her research interest lies in the environmental impact of microorganisms, including organic micropollutant biodegradation in on-site wastewater treatment systems. Judit has been studying microbiologically influenced corrosion for 9 years, with a major focus on industrial cooling water systems. Her experiences include MIC monitoring and diagnosis by applying the multiple lines of evidence (MLOE) approach and the use of molecular and microbiological methods (MMM). She is a member of the Hungarian Corrosion Association (HUNKOR), the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), and the International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation Society (IBBS), where Judit is also the country representative for Hungary.
During her MIC studies, Judit has experienced how little some material scientists, engineers, or chemists know, if at all, about the capability of microbes to influence corrosion. When MIC is diagnosed, results are often misinterpreted, ignored, undervalued, while some industrial sectors fail to share them in fear of public reaction. By joining the Euro-MIC COST Action, her aim is to help moving this field forward, narrowing the gap between industry and academy and shaping the next era of MIC research. As an MC member for Hungary and lead of Working Group 1 – Intersectoral bridging, Judit is working toward these goals.
