Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)
Pascal Saikaly is a Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). He leads the Environmental Biotechnology group at KAUST. He is the author/co-author of over 120 peer-reviewed journal articles. He is Associate Editor of Frontiers in Microbiology. The principal goal his research is to optimize and develop sustainable environmental biotechnologies that enable us to fully harness the metabolic potential of microbial communities for resource recovery from waste streams. We achieve our goal through interdisciplinary and collaborative-based research interconnecting science (electrochemistry, microbial ecology, and material science) and bioprocess engineering. His specific research interests include: electromicrobiology, microbial electrochemistry, anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) process, aerobic granular sludge, biological nutrient removal, water reuse, resource recovery.
