Specialty：Soil & Aquatic Microbiology
My research focuses on the development and use of molecular technologies to enhance the detection and remediation of environmental contamination. This includes the detection and identification of microbial pathogens from animal, human, and natural sources and also the characterization of microbial populations and communities contributing to applied remediation processes such as the bioremediation of organic and metal contaminants.
I currently teach an upper-level undergraduate course in Soil and Water Microbiology (SCSC 405) each Fall and Spring semester and a graduate course in Environmental Microbiology (SCSC 637) every other year.
