My recent research includes anaerobic co-digestion of mixed organic wastes such as animal manure and agricultural residues for biogas production and pretreatment of lignocellulosic materials for fuel ethanol generation.


  • Electrifying Animal & Fish Feed: Leveraging Microbes in Food Waste Anaerobic Digesters to Produce Single Cell Protein via Assimilation of CO2-Derived Formic Acid
  • Enzyme Enhanced Anaerobic Digestion (2E-AD) of Source Separated Organics and Municipal Solid Waste
  • Optimization of Lemnaceae-Based Biogas Production
  • Aquatic Biodegradability of Non-woven disposable structures
  • Pilot-scale Continuous Flow Microwave Pre-treatment of Switchgrass and Bermudagrass
  • Genetically Engineered Switchgrass for Ethanol Production
  • Growing duckweed on swine wastewater for ethanol production
  • Effective strategies for biogas and nutrient management resulting from anaerobic digestion in covered swine lagoons
  • Conversion of Coastal Bermuda Grass into Bioethanol
  • Assigning Costs to Nutrient Reduction For Crop Agriculture, Animal Agriculture, and Urban Stormwater Management Practices
