Current Research Interests

Metagenomics of hydrocarbon-degrading microbial communities, especially under anaerobic conditions; biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons, particularly under adverse environmental conditions in fuel-contaminated Antarctic soils, cold groundwater and subsurface soils; fundamental studies on mechanisms of hydrocarbon transport across bacterial membranes, and the use of whole cell biocatalysts for biological upgrading of petroleum and refined products; isolation and characterization of cold-adapted bacterial communities that live underneath glaciers.
