Rima Avetisyan obtained her bachelor's degree from Yerevan State University in 2020, followed by a master's degree in 2022. During her master's program, Rima broadened her horizons with a semester abroad at the University of Lille in France. Her academic journey began at YSU's Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Biotechnology within the Faculty of Biology. In bachelor's research, Rima investigated the growth patterns of the facultative chemolithoautotroph Ralstonia eutropha on organic waste materials, focusing on redox regulation. For her master's thesis, she explored the impact of gold nanoparticles on the growth and hydrogenase activity of Ralstonia eutropha bacteria. Rima is involved in research involving anaerobic bacteria for molecular hydrogen production, utilizing organic waste as a sustainable resource. Her research interests extend to using industrial and agricultural organic byproducts for microbial biomass and bioenergy production, highlighting her dedication to sustainable innovation and environmental stewardship.
