Research interests

Our societies are generating an increasing quantity of organic wastes, such as industrial and agricultural wastes. With reactor microbiomes under anaerobic conditions, by using carboxylate platform and syngas platform, such waste treatments create an opportunity to substitute fossil-based fuels and chemicals, like middle chain fatty acids and alcohols.

Therefore, my objectives are learning the mechanism of chain elongation and reduction to alcohols and then understanding the reactor microbiomes in order to steer the process.

Current research topic

Chain elongation with lactic acid
Combination of carboxylate and syngas platforms
