Post-Doctoral Researcher

Research Activities
• Development of sustainable bioprocesses using SSF and SHF approaches for production of biosurfactant and enzyme with valorisation of agroforestry residues.
• Use of nanofiltration process for detoxification of lignocellulosic extracts.
• Bioreactor fermentation, process scale-up simulation for economic evaluation.
• Valorisation of industrial wastes through microbial biotechnology.
