Dr Ifechukwu Enyinnanya Adieze
My research focuses primarily on microbial ecology. A large part of my current research is directed towards examining the microbial biodegradation of hydrocarbon compounds present in crude oil, the production and use of microbial surfactants in remediation of crude oil polluted the soil. I have also research interests in the monitoring of the quality of water samples from rivers and municipal supplies to determine factors affecting portability and quality, and the spread of resistance among clinical bacterial isolates in the hospital environment.
