    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.

    I am a research officer and Lecturer in Packaging Technology. My two primary research interests are in food packaging and food oral processing. My research is mostly applied with some theoretical elements, the application of mathematical modelling is a central theme in both my research areas.
