My recent research includes anaerobic co-digestion of mixed organic wastes such as animal manure and agricultural residues for biogas production and pretreatment of lignocellulosic materials for fuel ethanol generation.


  • Optimization of Lemnaceae-Based Biogas Production
  • Aquatic Biodegradability of Non-woven disposable structures
  • Pilot-scale Continuous Flow Microwave Pre-treatment of Switchgrass and Bermudagrass
  • Genetically Engineered Switchgrass for Ethanol Production
  • Growing duckweed on swine wastewater for ethanol production
  • Effective strategies for biogas and nutrient management resulting from anaerobic digestion in covered swine lagoons
  • Conversion of Coastal Bermuda Grass into Bioethanol
  • Assigning Costs to Nutrient Reduction For Crop Agriculture, Animal Agriculture, and Urban Stormwater Management Practices
  • Genetically Engineered Switchgrass for Ethanol Production
  • Genetically Engineer Switchgrass to Reduce Lignin, Increase Cellulose, and Improve Ethanol Production
