My current research focus is to devise integrated closed loop processes to extract critical metals (rare, strategic, precious and REEs) from secondaries and wastes by hybrid methods of extraction in tandem or in toto. My other research interests are biohydrometallurgy, battery recycling, environmental microbe-metal interactions.

I extensively use solution chemistry and lixivium-metal interaction as the basis for my research activities.  My research publications can be accessed at Research Gate/Google Scholar.
