Dr. Mahadevan focuses his studies in systems biology, metabolic modeling, metabolic engineering, synthetic biology, bioprocess optimization and control, metabolism.
Dr. Radhakrishnan Mahadevan and his lab aim to design and discover biological processes that are reflected in projects dealing with microbial fuel cells, biofuels, bioremediation and the analysis of metabolic interactions in human brain. The lab group has an expertise in modeling and analysis of metabolism on designing innovative solutions for these outstanding challenges.
The topics being studied are:
- Genome-scale models of cellular processes
- Optimization and control of biological processes
- Application: Models of Microbial Communities for Improving Bioremediation
- Application: Model-based Engineering for Microbial Fuel Cells
