Precision fermentation, Bioprocess scale-up, environmental microbiology, Industrial bioprocesses, sustainability, carbon sequestration, Bioremediation, alternative energy production, biogeochemistry

Research Description

The Coates Lab focuses on environmental microbiology: applied and industrial microbiology, precision fermentation, the circular bioeconomy, bioprocessing, 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 biomanufacturing processes, carbon sequestration, and bioremediation of diverse toxic compounds (metals, radionuclides, and organics).
