We study water, sediment and biota microbial quality in marine, coastal and freshwater systems.
Areas of focus include:
- vibrio ecology and shellfish safety
- microbiology of waste water treatment
- microbial source tracking in water (marine, freshwater recreational and drinking water) and associations between water sources and opportunistic pathogens in drinking water.
