Meet our new researchers!
Dr. Masatoshi Kishi joined the gas treatment and microalgae research group as a MSCA postdoctoral researcher. His research will be focused on the development of chlorophyll fluorescence-based technologies to monitor and control the mass cultivation of algae using waste streams.

Bruna Sampaio joined the gas treatment and microalgae research group as a visiting PhD student. Her research will be focused on the influence of nanoparticles on microalgae cultivation during photosynthetic biogas upgrading.
