Personal profile


I am heading a group on microbial metabolic engineering. Current projects involve developing pentose-fermenting and inhibitor-tolerant Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast) for the production of bioethanol and other bulk chemicals of interest as well as understanding and improving stereo-selective whole cell biocatalysis. More recently, the potential of bioconverting lignin components into high value compounds is also investigated ( The database we built on the catabolism of aromatics can be found here
