Prof. Dawid (*1982) focuses on the screening, identification and quantification of bioactive, sensory active and techno-functional natural compounds in food and plant raw materials as well as their human metabolism. She has a special focus on metabolites that are upregulated by abiotic and biotic stress factors in crops. After her studies of food chemistry at the University of Münster, Prof. Dawid started her doctoral studies with Prof. Dr. Thomas F. Hofmann in Münster. In 2007 she followed her doctoral supervisor to the Weihenstephan Science Centre of the TUM where she completed her doctorate and did a postdoctoral research. During a research stay at the Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok, she was instrumental in establishing the Institute for Molecular Sensor Technology. Back in Munich she began her habilitation with studies on stress resistance in plants. After the appointment of Hofmann as President of the TUM, Prof. Dawid took over the provisional leadership of the Chair of Food Chemistry and Molecular Sensor Technology. Since 2020 she is also a member of the ZIEL Institute for Food and Health and deputy director of the Bavarian Centre for Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry (BayBioMS).
