Nuno T. Faria
Post-Doctoral Researcher

Research Activities
• Biorefinery concepts based on lignocellulosic waste materials combining unconventional yeast and enzymatic hydrolysis or consolidated bioprocessing;
• Development of sustainable bioprocesses for green surfactants, enzymes, chemical building blocks and winter and jetfuel precursors production
• Microbial cell factories optimization with analysis of 13C isotopomers for metabolic flux analysis.
