Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am working on the development of biotechnologies for sustainable built environment with focus on ground improvement and treatment/repair of concrete infrastructure. 

 

Research Interests

I have research experience in the application of biogeotechnical engineering approaches, involving the use of bacteria and fungi for soil improvement.

I am interested in harnessing green/sustainable biotechnologies incorporating vegetation, microbes, biofilms, biopolymers etc. for:

(i) mitigation and reversal of soil erosion, land degradation, desertification, landslides; as engineering interventions for soil protection, preservation, conservation, remediation, and restoration;

(ii) concrete repair and carbon-efficient bio-coatings for concrete facades.

I make specialist contributions to environmental impact assessment and multidisciplinary industry-based projects. I am enthusiastic about science/environmental policy development and science communication.
