Radhakrishnan Mahadevan, PhD
My research is focussed in the areas of Microbial metabolism, Metabolic Engineering, Systems Biology, Synthetic Biology. Application areas include synthesis of renewable chemicals and therapeutic small molecules. Another focus of my research group is in the area of metabolism and physiology of microbial communities with the idea of engineering them for applications in bioremediation and gut microbiome.
