Areas of expertise
The research in our group focuses on enhancing cyanobacterial cells to function as carbon neutral cell factories to produce high value compounds from CO2, water and sunlight. My focus is in native hydrocarbons, which are compatible with existing combustion engines, and utilization of acetate as an additional carbon source when light is scarce. I have also been involved in projects studying ethylene production in cyanobacteria. In addition my projects validate sophisticated synthetic biology tools generated in our group.
