Innovator Bio

I think about my research as applying the approaches of bioprocess engineering and systems biology in different mixes and different ways. Generally, my research has been in the direction of environmental biotechnology – cleaning up contaminated soil and water with plants, micro-organisms, and enzymes. Another area of my research is to use micro-organisms and algae to make fuels and chemicals from biomass. A third area has been making bioanalytical devices and biosensors.
