Research: Cell-to-cell communication (quorum sensing) within the microbial community of bioelectrochemical systems, such as microbial fuel cells.
We are working to improve the power output of microbial fuel cells by optimizing the reactor configuration, operation, and electron transfer rate. Arvind is especially interested in using powerful computer models to explain his experimental data.
Arvind is supported through a NSF CAREER grant.
