Background Information
Section Affiliation Applied and Environmental Microbiology
Research Interests    We construct biosensors for detecting pollutants in water and novel antimicrobials from natural products. The current biosensor projects are for detection of naphthenic acids from oilsands process-affected water (OSPW), as well as pharmaceuticals in municipal water. We have developed biosensors for compounds that disrupt bacterial outer membranes, which are being used to identify novel antimicrobials from natural products. Compounds that block biofilm are also under development.
