Research

Most of my work has focused on the ecology of the activated sludge engineered ecosystem that we use to treat wastewater at treatment plants.

I co-created the MIDAS: Field Guide to the Microbes of Activated Sludge is a central on-line resource for both scientists and treatment plant operators that collects current knowledge about this ecosystem as a platform for improving the process.
