Research Activities

-Bacterial degradation of hydrocarbons.


-Collection, screening, isolation and identification of potential microbial candidates with degradation capabilities towards a vast array of hydrocarbons (specifically linear alkanes and mono-aromatics).


-Study of degradation kinetics in single and multiple substrate systems.


-Enhancing bio-remediation using bio-augmentation and bio-stimulation.


-Studying bio-remediation in soil microcosms and real contaminated soil samples.
