Academics and Research

Research Interests:

My research interests focus at the interface of physical, chemical and biological processes and incorporate both experimentation and modeling. Recent research areas include interactions between microorganisms and surfaces, focusing on how adhesion under charge-regulated conditions affects microbial and physiochemical processes; microbial kinetics in natural and engineered systems, with application to bioremediation of environmental contaminants and energy recovery from organic waste streams; and microbial attachment and transport through porous media, focusing on attachment and transport of microorganisms through both saturated and unsaturated porous media and how solution chemistry affects these processes. I also have research interests in bioinspired materials, and have collaborated on microbial processes to strengthen soils.
