Research interests

              1) Microbiomes in coal mines for converting coal to methane

              2) Microbial fuel cells and solar cells for CO2 reduction and electricity production

              3) Strain selection and enzymatic mechanisms for increased lipid content in microalgae the goal of utilizing microalgae for biofuel production.

              4) Understanding the fate, transport and toxicity of emerging contaminants in the environment

              5) Biochemical conversion of lignocellulosic feedstocks to biofuels: pretreatment, hydrolysis and fermentation

              6) Isolation, identification, and characterization of thermophilic lignocellulose degrading bacteria for bioethanol/biodiesel production from plant-based materials.

              7) Proper utilization of industrial and agricultural wastes or by-products for producing value-added products through biological processes.

              8) Water reuse and wastewater treatment

              9) Bioremediation and biodegradation of organic contaminants in subsurface and groundwater
