Research area of Dishant revolves around environmental microbiology, microbial genomics and metagenomics. His previous research work uncovered the complexity of enriched bacterial community to devise self-sustainable bio-electrochemical systems for textile wastewater bioremediation. Now in Navarro lab, he investigates the trophic interactions between bacteria and protists and the impact of these associations on the soil carbon formation.
