Research Interests

​Recovering energy and products from wastes is possible. One of the approaches to achieve this goal is using biolectrochemical systems to treat wastewater and produce biofuels and bioproducts. I am interested in study biolectrchemical systems due to its important implication in resource transformation and recovery.
