Research Interest
1) Wastewater treatment
2) Bioremediation
3) Air pollution
4) Others: microbiological influenced corrosion(MIC) survey and biofiltration process to remove VOCs or toxic gases (e.g. hydrogen sulfide) are going on. Plant cell and tissue culture is another main stream of research activity of our group, through which high value complicated chemicals(mainly phytochemicals such as taxol(anti-cancer drug), ginkgoglide and sangunarine) can be produced in an environmentally friendly way.
