Research Interests

  • •. Advanced oxidation technologies for wastewater treatment
    •. Fate and removal of emerging contaminants such as antibiotic resistant bacteria, antibiotic resistant genes, associated biological contaminants from wastewater and surface water
    • Bioremediation and biodegradation in engineered biological systems for waste gas and wastewater treatment
    • Development of novel bio-carriers in moving bed bioreactors (MBBR) to remove high loads of nitrogen from wastewater
    • Valorisation of high value products from biomass, food waste and marine resources
    •. Bioprocessing of food and nutraceuticals through green and sustainable technologies (subcritical water and enzymatic extraction) by a biorefinery approach
    • Anaerobic digestion and bioenergy
