Developing new science and technology related to the processing of algal biomass to biodiesel and bioproducts.
Our research spans fundamental problems through to applied research that aims to translate research findings to a range of industries.
Cell physiology and rupture
Developing an understanding of how the physiology of algal cells effects mechanical cell rupture.
Lipid extraction and biomass processing
The group has developed efficient processes for converting algal biomass to biofuels and products.
Algal growth and lipidomics
We routinely use state-of-the-art methods for characterising algal lipids, in collaboration with Metabolomics Australia.
