Primarily focused on describing the abundance of individuals within microbial populations using computational models that account for ecological drift and selection. Specifically, tackling the question of whether we can accurately derive population dynamics through calibration of these models when using time series data.
I am a final year PhD student in the James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow. My PhD research is focused on the feasibility of Waste-to-Hydrogen technology for sustainable waste management and green public transport in Glasgow, Scotland. The study involves using life cycle assessment, cost benefit analysis and optimisation techniques to assess the viability of Waste-to-Hydrogen conversion technology and systems in the production of hydrogen.
Research areas are: biogas production, anaerobic microbiology, septic tanks, and antibiotic resistance in wastewater.
My thesis explores: the effects that beta-lactam antibiotics have on the treatment efficiencies and community structure on granular anaerobic communities.
My research focus on antimicrobial resistances in decentralised wastewater treatment systems. My research especially focusses on how wetland and lab-scale study of diversity of microbial community drives the change of growth rate when exposed to different amoxicillin concentrations.
