About my research

My research area is biological engineering. I specialize in microbial biosystems engineering, bioreactor processes and modelling, meta-omics technologies, and resource management for bio-industrial manufacturing of high-value products, biomedical and bio-health, and environmental applications, and development of sustainable circular bioeconomy. - The research is directly related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), specifically SDG 7, 9, 11, and 13. To achieve these goals, I design transformative and advanced bioengineered processes for sustainable production of biochemicals, biotherapeutics, agri-bioinoculants, biomaterials, and clean energy generation.

How my research improves life

Sustainable bioprocessing and biomanufacturing technologies are critically needed to boost the Canadian bio-based economy in economic production of bio-based products. Their high relevance to Canada has been witnessed during and post COVID-19 pandemic. My research perfectly aligns with and fulfils this requirement and therefore has direct and significant implications towards sustainable biomanufacturing, agriculture, energy and bio-health sectors. More importantly, it contributes to the SDGs which are needed to improve life.

Why choose U of G?

Being at the forefront of bioprocessing and bioeconomy, U of G enables me to perform cutting-edge research in the area of biological engineering. This allows me to attract top students with diverse backgrounds in biochemical, microbial, agricultural and environmental engineering. The numerous funding opportunities available for graduate students provide a good research support to them along with a world-class training.
