My lab studies microbial water quality and aquatic biofilm microbial ecology.
We utilize molecular microbial source tracking with the goals of mitigating water pollution sources and the protection of public health for the users of surface and ground waters. We investigate the transport and fate of pollution indicator organisms and pathogens in surface waters, the deposition and resuspension of pollution indicator organisms and pathogens in sediments and biofilms, and the effect of water pollution (e.g. heavy metals contamination) on the composition and ecology of aquatic biofilms.
