Professor of Environmental Microbiology

Microbial Resource Management and Engineering -- the bridge between environmental engineering and microbial ecology -- is the central tenet in all we do.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My research group uses both advanced microscopic and molecular tools as well as computational approaches to study fundamental and applied microbial ecological questions, with a special interest in biofilm science and engineering
 
This translates in an seemingly wide range of research topics: Biotechnological processes for water and soil remediation; biofilm reactor technology; nitrogen cycling: applications and fundamentals; microbial molecular ecology of polluted habitats and waste treatment systems; biocatalyis & biodegradation of xenobiotics; bacterial adhesion & biofilm formation; bioelectrochemical systems, horizontal gene transfer in microbial communities; mathematical modelling of microbial processes and interactions; bioreactor design and analysis; biotechnology and the new wastewater management paradigm.

I coordinate the Microbial Ecology Research Group (http://www.env.dtu.dk/Forskning.aspx), and the METLab research team at DTU Environment. Official, slightly dull, webpages can be found here:www.staff.dtu.dk/bfsm.
