Research interests

My research interest isfocusing on Environmental Biofilm in engineering systems (mainly for wastewater treatment) for pollutants treatment, including but not limited to Microbial Ecology and Extracellular Electron Transfer Mechanisms.

Main research areas:

  • Electrochemically active microorganisms
  • Microbial ecology in engineering systems
  • Microbial extracellular electron transfer
