Research Areas

Find out how the swimming behavior of bacteria affects attachment to surfaces and the subsequent formation of biofilms.

What we view as chemical pollutants in groundwater, bacteria see as a new carbon source for their diet. Learn more about bioremediation here.

Some microorganisms love the heat. Learn how they find the hot spots and what keeps them coming back for more.

Modeling Tools
Ever wonder what it's like to be a bacterium swimming through the soil? See how we're modeling bacterial motility.
