Profile

Project title: Microbial ecology of biomethane generation from sulphate containing wastewaters

Summary: I will investigate the diversity, metabolism and interactions of microbial communities during anaerobic treatment of sulphate containing wastewaters with the overarching aim of enhancing biomethane generation. I will set up microcosms under varying conditions with different anaerobic sludge samples as inocula. Findings from this study will broaden our knowledge in the anaerobic microbiology area and aid in the design of efficient methane producing communities.
