Anjali is currently working on a BBSRC-funded project for ‘A Scalable Bio-based Solution to Eliminate Cyanotoxins in Drinking Water’. This is to address the problem of cyanotoxins in drinking water wells in Sri Lanka. Here, we are using biochar as a support for biofilm growth, capable of degrading cyanotoxins. The challenge is to tailor biochar production that enables biofilm growth. We also need to  understand the biochar-biofilm interactions in order to optimise the operating conditions of this bio-filter. I also have experience working with the electrochemical applications of biochar, especially in energy storage and energy conversion. I study the use of biochar-based materials for use as electrocatalysts in Oxygen Evolution Reactions (OER), Oxygen Reduction Reaction (ORR), etc.
