About Me

Having a background in materials science and bioprocess engineering, my research is focused on:

  • the development and implementation of integrated biorefinery schemes for the biological conversion of waste by-products and biomass to high value-added fuels, materials, and chemicals ( biogas, biohydrogen, polyhydroxyalkanoates, bacterial cellulose, biosurfactants, bioemulsifiers),
  • the recovery of antioxidant and antimicrobial compounds ( phenolics, chitin oligomers, lipopeptides),
  • the formulation of bio-based, biodegradable, functional polymers and green composites with enhanced properties,
  • the physicochemical, thermal and mechanical analysis of chemicals and materials, as well as assessment of their cytotoxicity,
  • the identification and evaluation of potential high value applications for bio-based products and materials of microbial origin.
