  • Keertna Bhuvan's research focuses on the optimization of microalgae to convert electrochemically reduced CO2 products (which is pulled from the air via carbon capture) into macro- and micro-nutrients to make food products. One main challenge is that these products from the reduction process also tend to contain toxic byproducts that hinder algal growth. 
  • Students do not need any prior experience in a research lab. Some experimental skills that the student will learn are buffer preparation, aseptic technique, cell culture, ARTmP usage, Bioscreen C usage, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and other microbiology techniques. Some other skills the students will learn are data analysis, technical writing, reviewing complex literature, and presentation of results. Students from any background are encouraged to apply! 
  • This project will develop a sustainable method of food production by (1) valorizing CO2 waste and (2) through the fermentation of microorganisms, saving acres of land space for crop and livestock cultivation. Additionally, this project aims to provide a solution to the urgent need for greater food production for communities in need.
