My current research interests are the recovery of nutrients from food processing wastes/by-products, microbial production (Protein-rich fungal biomass as animal feed or food, Polyhydroxyalkanoates, Bioethanol, Bacterial cellulose, etc.), and extraction of bioactive compounds having antimicrobial and antibiofilm agents. I am experienced in cultivation of both bacteria and fungi in large-scale reactors and membrane bioreactors. My research also focuses on both enhancement biometabolite production from industrial waste and improvement bioremoval of toxic compounds by using the Vitreoscilla Hemoglobin gene.
Doctoral thesis title
