Research Interests

My primary research includes the biochemistry and physiology of lignocellulose decomposition by fungi and the industrial application of fungi and enzymes. I have done research on the biodegradation of lignin and the application of lignin-degrading fungi and their enzymes in the pulp and paper industry and in bioremediation of soil and water.
