Welcome to the Reston Microbiology Laboratory!
Who We Are
Reston Microbiology Laboratory
The RML research team conducts research on the fate of contaminants and nutrients in surface and subsurface environments with the goal of understanding how interactions between microbes and their environment can be used to solve anthropogenic issues. The team has expertise in microbial ecology, biogeochemistry, geomicrobiology, and molecular biology. We combine field observations and laboratory experiments to determine how microbes impact contaminant mitigation, environmental health, energy production, and carbon cycling.
