Having previously worked at a range of scales, from single cell to industrial pilot plants, I am interested in the development of novel green processes that are key to the implementation of sustainable biotechnology. Specifically, I focus on the exploitation of microbial photosynthesis to increase the sustainability of industrial processes.

Primary fields of research

  • Lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs) for light-driven biomass conversion
  • Photosynthetic biotechnology
  • Genetic engineering in cyanobacteria
