My current research deals with the development of modelling and surveillance method for the "Microbiological surveillance of Biogas Plants".


I am a post-doctoral researcher in Molecular Microbiology and Bioinformatics at the Microbial Biotiechnology group, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Uppsala, Sweden. Here I am responsible for the further development of our acetogenic community based surveillance of biogas plants. The main of aim of my project is do employ machine learning strategy for the community analysis and prediction of microbiological changes in the complex anaerobic digestion and methanogenic community. 

Moreover, we also want to take a step futher and working on using our surveillance strategy in the environmental monitoring of acetogenic communities in several natural environments.  

The development and maintenance of web-server and database/repository  AcetoBase is one of my tasks at Microbial Biotechnology group. I am also the developer of the analysis pipeline AcetoScan which is the main and most updated semi-supervised analysis method of the acetogenic targetted data analysis for Next Generation Sequencing data of FTHFS gene.


My research interests is a conglomerate of molecular microbiology and bioinformatics in several environmental and sustainbility aspects. Previous research projects I have been a part were related to the clincial microbiology oriented research preceed by the phytopathology avenue.
