Our Research

My research objectives focus on developing energy-efficient treatment strategies for wastewater treatment. I examine biofilm systems where microorganisms use counter-diffusional chemical gradients to accomplish treatment goals. I am interested in developing scalable process designs that could be easily integrated into existing treatment infrastructure, but am also interested in the ecology and function of the microorganisms that facilitate treatment.


The best science can only be realized by embracing inclusivity and diversity, and we are committed to creating an open environment in which all feel welcome and supported.
