Bridging the gap between ecology and geochemistry by bioenergetics

Currently, I am attempting to build a theoretical framework by integrating ecology, evolution, and bioenergetics to understand the interspecific relationships and the metabolic diversity of chemotrophic microorganisms.Recent my studies have devoted to applying the bioenergetics to develop the population dynamics model of chemotrophic microorganisms for better understanding the ecological and evolutionary aspects of the chemo(litho)trophic community.

My research has been focusing on

Understanding the population dynamics and intraspecific interactions of chemotrophic microorganisms on the energetic basis.

Evaluating the potential growth of chemotrophs on the energetic edge.

Assessing the human and ecological risk of pollutants, especially heavy metals and radioactive materials.
