I joined the Clark group in the summer of 2012.

My research focuses on the engineering of solvent-producing Clostridia for the production of new metabolic products as precursors for their chemocatalytic conversion to diesel and lubricant molecules. I am also designing, fabricating, and operating extractive fermentation systems to establish continuous 2-15 L bioprocesses that will subsequently be tested at the pilot scale.
