Research Area

Applied & Environmental Microbiology Laboratory(AEML) studies on bacterial metabolisms of organic
pollutants and heavy metals with purpose of cleaning environments and producing valuable
products.
Through years, bacteria the tiny living organisms have shaped our planet by communicating with
the surrounding environmental conditions. This communication allowed bacteria to earn excellent
biological tools able to modify or metabolize the chemicals. Therefore, we are interested in
mimicking the tools of bacteria, which we humankind do not have, for treatment of environmental
contaminants and production of noble biomaterials.
