About Prof. Feng ZHAO's team


THE MAIN FOCUS in Prof. Feng ZHAO’s lab is primarily on developing bioelectrochemical systems (BESs) concerning bio-energy, bioelectro-nics, bionanotechnology and environmental biotechnology; this investigation involves multiple aspects including electrochemistry, molecular biology, microbiology and engineering technology. We are seeking to elucidate scientific fundamentals of BES, e.g. to understand the mechanisms for electron transfer between bacteria/enzymes and electrodes, to optimize operational conditions and architecture design, as well as to improve BES performance in long-term operation.
