Dr Hii Yiik Siang Yvonne

Research Fellow
Biofilm Biology cluster, SCELSE


Dr Yvonne Hii has joined SCELSE as a research fellow under the supervision of Dr. Jamie Hinks. Currently, she is a part of the Biofilm Biology Cluster, working alongside Prof. Staffan Kjelleberg and Dr. Stephen Summers. Within SCELSE, her research focuses on the isolation and enrichment of methanotrophs from diverse environmental samples. Additionally, she will be focusing on the production of single cell protein (SCP) and polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) from methanotrophs. Her research aims to culture methanotrophs in a high-pressure bioreactor with the goal of improving the yield of SCP and PHB by increasing the solubility of methane. Yvonne obtained her PhD in Biochemical Engineering from Curtin University, where her research centered on the isolation and microencapsulation of phosphate solubilizing microorganisms found in peat.
