I am interested in the ecology of ammonia-oxidizing prokaryotes in engineered biofiltration environments, such as wastewater treatment plants and aquarium biofilters. My research focuses on assessing the abundance and activity of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) in engineered environments, in addition to cultivation and genome sequencing of novel freshwater AOA.
