Research Interests


My main interest is biotechnological and environmental applications of yeasts. My research group is active in the following areas:
- New and powerful methods for strain characterization (X-Omics such as genomics, metagenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, fluxomics) and improvement (such as metabolic engineering, reverse metabolic engineering, systems biology, synthetic biology). 
- Heterologous proteins expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Yarrowia lipolytica, Pichia pastoris and other nonconventional yeasts.
- Biotechnologically valuable products (such as lipase, laccase, glucose oxidase, asparaginase, glutaminase enzymes, and citric acid, isocitric acid, single cell protein, single cell oil,…) production using Yarrowia lipolytica from renewable sources and wastes.
- Enzyme immobilization on nanomaterials (magnetic nanoparticles and nanocomposite) and its kinetics study.
- Microbial biofules and bioelectricity production.
- Isolation and biodiversity study of yeasts.
