Areas of Interest
The rapidly growing global population and food consumption are exerting increasingly huge pressure on our planet. When more natural resources are consumed, the lifestyles are less sustainable and the impact on environment is raised. To effectively tackle those issues with bioprocess and electrochemical techniques, I’ve developed research interests and experience to recover nutrients from various waste streams; to generate bioenergy and electricity from biomass; and to removal contaminants and recalcitrant chemicals by incorporating advanced oxidation processes.
