Research interests

The research themes in our laboratory are microbial and plant biochemistry and environmental biotechnology. We are interested in the elucidation of metabolic pathways and our research continues with structural analysis and engineering of enzymes. A major focus of our research is to understand how microorganisms and plants metabolise xenobiotic compounds. We believe that a deeper knowledge in understanding how microorganisms and plants tackle pollutants is essential if we are to develop effective, low cost and sustainable processes for cleaning up the environment. Enzyme discovery and characterisation is central to our work. Being an applied lab, we are particularly interested in utilising the enzymes we discover for various applications such as discovering novel biocatalysts for synthetic chemistry, as recognition components in biosensors and for producing biofuels.
