Advancements in the field of molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, biotechnology, and proteomics provide environmental engineers additional tools to investigate the fundamental operations occurring in biological systems.
My research activities are focused on integrating these various disciplines and utilizing these tools to:
- Develop a fundamental understanding of the structure and function of engineered systems,
- Apply this knowledge in the design of new treatment systems and the optimization of existing technologies,
- and Develop and apply molecular probes that can be applied by field personnel in real-time monitoring and optimization.
