Research Interests

​My research interest is on the development of microbial electrochemical technologies and on the novel applications of these technologies such as in synthesis of value-added products and for the utilization of waste (gas/liquid). I am interested in the development and control of unique electrochemical interactions of microbes in various electricity-driven bioprocesses.
