Inhibition kinetics of biooxidation microorganisms
My research interests lie predominantly in the application of biomining techniques for recovery of metals from mineral sulphides as well as waste materials (electronic waste) via. exploitation of the metabolism of iron- and sulphur-oxidising organisms to liberate precious metals or solubilise base metals.
