Zulfiqar Ahmad star Proven Solver

Zulfiqar Ahmad My primary research interest is oriented to uncover novel biodegradation metabolisms and biotransformation pathways for emerging organic and inorganic contaminants by the application of biosurfactants and biosurfactant producing bacteria. By incorporating modern biomolecular techniques and analytical tools, my research is also expanded from fundamental understanding of microorganisms and populations involved in natural and engineered systems of environmental relevance to technology innovation applicable for areas, such as sustainable water/wastewater treatment, bioenergy generation. The central goal of my research is to advance current bioremediation and water treatment technologies using state-of-art microbial surfactants (biosurfactants) assisted techniques to promote their performance and cost-efficiency.
