Background Information
Section Affiliation Applied and Environmental Microbiology
Research Interests    I’m a master’s student interested in renewable energy sources, especially liquid biofuels. Currently I’m working with a hyperthermophilic anaerobic enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase. This enzyme has many qualities that make it a suitable industrial candidate for ethanol production, but it is sensitive oxygen. Using molecular biological techniques, I’m trying to develop more oxygen tolerant form of the enzyme.
