My research activity have different aspects that include the recovery of waste and materials of little commercial value coming from agribusiness, biodiesel manufacturing process, the study of chemical synthesis processes eco-friendly or the use of biocatalysts for several processes.
In the actuality, I’m starting a new research line related with the Synthetic Biology. I propose to create viable industrially useful novel microbes
(cells, bacteria and yeast) with profound changes in their molecular and biosynthetic machineries.
