My main interest is the use of microorganisms, such as acetogenic bacteria, for the conversion of CO2 and electric power into useful chemicals, such as biofuels. Such a microbial electrosynthesis is of interest to upgrade CO2 into valuable products, while at the same time converting excess electrical energy in a storable form.

My main goal is to better understand the interactions between the microorganisms and the electrode. My research studies the extracellular electron transfer mechanisms of microorganisms, as well as their attachment to electrodes. In addition, I am interested in microbial induced corrosion, gas fermentation and biofilm formation.

My group uses both lab experiments and mathematic modelling.
