John Vincent George

Bioenergy and Biofuels

Biography

Supervising Faculty: Cong Trinh

John’s research interests focus on the area metabolic engineering, fermentation process and system biology. His research work includes identifying the platform microorganism that naturally produce desired bioproducts or biofuels and then improving phenotype of the microbe through metabolic engineering with the aim of enhancing titer, rate, yield of the desired products. He is also studying how the individual as well as interaction effects of operating parameters could affect microbial productivity during fermentation process. Main thrust areas of his research lie in developing genetic tools to model a cell growth and predict complex phenotypes such as chemical tolerances, product inhibition, multigenic traits. Besides studing, he enjoys reading, travelling, movies, working out, and spending time with social friends.
