My research group focuses on developing an understanding of how biological processes affect the fate of pollutants in the environment. We apply a wide variety of techniques from analytical chemistry, molecular biology and microbiology in conjunction with mass and energy balance approaches to unravel and model complex microbial processes.
I am currently one of the Project Leaders for a Genome Canada-funded project called "BEEM: Bioproducts and Enzymes from Environmental Metagenomes", which focuses on developing microbial cultures and enzymes capable of commercially relevant biotransformations.
