Environmental Microbiology and Biotechnology

Our group employs multidisciplinary strategies to study microbial communities in natural and engineered systems.  We are guided by the ultimate vision that gaining a better understanding of these communities will allow us to fully harness their power towards achieving several objectives such as waste treatment, bioenergy, anti-microbial therapies and ultimately contribute to improved environmental and public health.
