I-CORE Research:

Energy-Rich Biomass

My lab will be developing analytical systems that allow the extraction, detection, identification and quantification of lipid and carbohydrate species. Once such tools will be optimized they will be used as a collaboration with other partners to analyze material generated by them throughout the project.

Research Group:

Dr. Sergey Malitsky, Tatiana Tsimbalist


Other Research Areas:

My labs works on the regulation of wax biosynthesis in plants. In the course of the project we will generate transgenic plants overproducing wax components that could serve as high-quality fuels and valuable bio materials for various industrial applications.
