My research lies at the interaction between physical science, chemistry and biological sciences. I like to develop various physico-chemical methods and tools in order to decipher complex biological phenomenon. During my post graduate studies, I specialize myself in microbiology, especially cyanobacteria, and in the understanding of global biogeochemical pathway, such as nitrogen fixation. My goal is to further understand the abiotic and metabolic process that drive dynamics of N cycle, especially between cyanobacteria, and higher living form such as moss or lichen. I am also very interested in multivariate statistic and computer model for a better approach of complex emerging systems.
