Research Description

The Coates Lab focuses on environmental microbiology: applied microbiology, and bioremediation. They seek to balance society's need to provide sustainable ecological protection while maintaining stable economic growth and development. They achieve this through the application of a disparate range of microbial, chemical, computational, and engineering principles. Their specific research interests include renewable clean energies and manufacturing processes, carbon sequestration, and bioremediation of diverse toxic compounds (metals, radionuclides, and organics).
