Dr. Ramya, Professor of Genetic Engineering at SRM University (India), receives B-ACER (Bioenergy-Awards for Cutting Edge Research) Fellowship to return to CurtisLab as a visiting scholar. Previously, she collaborated on work in cellulosic biofuels with Trevor Zuroff (PhD '14) resulting in numerous co-authored publications including Physiology, genomic, and pathway engineering of an ethanol-tolerant strain of Clostridium phytofermentans. Based on more recent research on metagenomics and algal bioremediation, algae biofuels will be the focus of an equally fruitful 6-month (June-December) collaboration.

Almost overlapping, her student, Krishnan Sreenivas, departed after a 6-month stint in CurtisLab that finished off his senior year.
