Forschungsschwerpunkte

My research studies focus on CO2 reduction in bio-electrochemical system. I am in particular interested in finding the most efficient and applicable way to convert CO2 to value-added products either using microorganisms directly (biocatalysts) or through bio-compatible chemical catalysts, which the products can be further fed to microorganisms, in electrochemical reactors.
