Areas of interest:

Microbial aspects of water pollution; developing cost-effective and feasible biotechnologies for removing pollutants from water; the biological processes leading to removal and or detoxification of toxic heavy metals from contaminated wastewater by microalgae; the effect of global change, mainly the effect of increasing CO2 concentration on vegetation, using Azolla-Anabaena symbiosis as a model system.
