Oskar Modin

Professor at Water Environment Technology

Oskar’s research subject is environment biotechnology. He is particularly interested in how microbial communities function and how we can use them to recover resources from waste streams such as wastewater. A few examples of research areas include microbial electrochemistry (e.g. microbial fuel cells), anaerobic digestion, and aerobic granular sludge. Oskar is a member of the Bioresource Labs research group.
