My research bridges the frontiers of environmental microbiology (study of microorganisms and microbial communities) and environmental biotechnology (design, modelling and scale-up of environmental bioprocesses). I currently focus on the characterisation and modelling of the environmental impacts of wastewater biological treatment and bio-energy production with special emphasis on algae-based bioprocesses.
Based in Manawatū, Dr Guieysse has conducted research that bridges environmental microbiology (the study of microorganisms and microbial communities used in environmental engineering) and environmental biotechnology (the design, modelling and scale-up of environmental bioprocesses). His current research aims to determine the environmental impacts of wastewater biological treatment and bio-energy production, with special emphasis on algae-based bioprocesses.
