Research Interest

Dr. Hussain’s research focuses on the development of innovative technologies for bioenergy and recovery of value-added products from different waste streams including municipal solid waste (MSW), agri-waste and wastewater. In this regard, his research program is centered on the following key themes: (1) microbial electrochemical technologies (METs), (2) anaerobic digestion (AD), and (3) fermentation of waste gases to high-value chemicals. He has also extensively studied the application of electromagnetic radiations for recovery of bioactive compounds from food processing waste.

Dr. Hussain has over 3 years of industrial and project management experience. He spearheaded waste-to-energy and climate change mitigation projects at United Nations (UN), Asian Development Bank (ADB) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI). At the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), he led governmental initiatives on decentralized approaches for solid waste management and wastewater treatment for remote communities.

Dr. Hussain is always looking for opportunities to collaborate and contribute to areas of mutual interest.  He can be reached via email or phone.
