Mo Ghashghavi, PhD Consultant

Mo Ghashghavi had a unique experience of growing up all over the world, adapting to cultures and educational systems of more than 10 different countries in Australia, Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. After performing his Bachelors in Biological Sciences with a minor in Psychology at the University of Alberta (U of A), he decided to continue his post-graduate career at the U of A in Microbiology and Biotechnology. His passion for microbes and how they affect earth’s biogeochemical cycles brought him to the Netherlands where he studied his PhD in the world renown lab of Environmental Microbiology at Radboud University. During this time, his main focus was on Methane Oxidizing Bacteria that reside in rice fields and their involvement in the fluxes of greenhouse gases. After realizing microbes’ potential in industrial settings, he became extremely fascinated with prospective use of any biological or biomedical findings. This desire brought Mo to ttopstart as a consultant, where he plans to build a bridge between theoretical research and industrial use by enabling the development of innovative products.
