Expertise

My research group studies microbial processes that are important to environmental quality and soil productivity.

One area of research focuses on the environmental fate and impact of organic pollutants and other emerging contaminants in soil and water.

A third area of research is bacterial source tracking of fecal contamination in surface waters.
