Vikram’s research harnesses metabolic and enzyme engineering to investigate, tailor and express biosynthetic enzymes that can convert biomass-derived feedstocks into better fuels and pharmaceuticals under benign conditions without using hazardous reagents and solvents. Salient examples of bioeconomy-related research and innovation in his research group includes (1) carbon capture and reutilization through gas-to-liquid bioprocessing for synthesis of C8-C12 alcohols, (2) bioconversion of lignin to value-added chemicals such as flavours and fragrances, (3) biosynthesis of speciality chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and (4) target- and diversity-oriented synthesis of bioactive natural products and novel analogues for drug discovery.
