Research interests

  • Anaerobic digestion (AD) for organic waste management and renewable energy production, especially optimisation of digestion process e.g. via selective trace element supplementation, and manipulation of microbially-mediated pathways methanogenesisMixed-culture fermentation for bio-based chemical production with integration of downstream recovery processes, especially on selective carboxylic acid production from protein-rich wastesCO2 biomethanisation, especially in-situ hydrogen addition new project to be createdMicrobial electrochemical systems for biofuel production, for instance for methane and biobutanol productionNutrient recovery from waste and wastewaterHeavy metal removal from industrial effluents and wastewaters using a range of synthetic nanoparticle and biosorption techniques.
