Main content

I am interested in constrained-based methods to characterize microbial metabolism and the development of new approaches to extend these current methodologies to describe and predict multispecies assemblies. Metabolic network models can be incorporated into multi-scale models that integrate abiotic environmental factors enabling a deeper understanding of microbial self-organization patterns in unsaturated media.


Current research interest

Metabolic network modeling of microbial communities in synthetic ecosystems

Integration of Systems Biology computational tools into multi-scale soil bacteria models


Other areas of expertise

Operation and modeling of bioreactors

Biological wastewater treatment processes

Sustainable production of value-added products from waste

Biopolymer characterization and processing
