Venkat Rao Konasani

Researcher at Chalmers, Biology and Biological Engineering, Industrial Biotechnology

Venkat Rao Konasani is a postdoctoral researcher in the division of Industrial Biotechnology. His primary research interest is in carbohydrate-acting enzymes. He currently works on the discovery of enzymes for the manipulation of polysaccharides extracted from macroalgae. He also investigates the applicability of these enzymes in seaweed biorefinery applications such as extraction of fine chemicals, and biofuel production.
