What we do

I am a microbiologist with interests in microbial ecology, and environmental microbiology and biotechnology, including in sustainable sanitation in international development; transmission routes of antimicrobial resistance; and in leveraging the utility of microbiomes in the natural and built environment. 

In our lab, we're interested in microbial ecosystems at the interfaces of the built and natural environment, and in public health, antimicrobial resistance and sustainable sanitation. Much of our work exploits carbon-, nitrogen-, sulfur- and iron-cycling. We work on molecular microbial ecology, metagenomics, and ecophysiology of complex biofilms. The objective is to understand, and manipulate, microbial communities to protect environmental quality and public health, as well as improve the reliability of microbial communities applied in the built environment andbioeconomy.
