Speaker: Dr Paolo Bombelli (Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge)

Dr Paolo Bombelli will present how plants can be grown to produce food, whereby photovoltaic panels generate electricity cooperatively on the same plot of land. This maximises space and energy and thus creates a more sustainable and greener food system.

Paolo Bombelli's interest in phobiology and electrochemistry began during his undergraduate studies at the University of Milan. His long term goals concentrate on exploring the potential of these hybrid systems in which photobiological elements (e.g. cyanobacteria and microalgae) are used in electrochemical set-ups (e.g., microbial fuel cell like) for the direct generation of electrical current, driving electro-synthesis and as bio-environmental sensors.
