Biography

Dave, scientist for a USGS National Research Program (NRP) project since 1987, investigates microbe-contaminant interactions.  Although focused on microbe/pathogen fate & persistence in hydrogeological systems; recent work examined antimicrobial mechanisms of therapeutic clays, how antibiotics affect aquifer microbial communities, & field-scale bacterial chemotaxis. The USGS multidisciplinary laboratory at CU, Boulder has collaborative ties to domestic academic institutions & governmental agencies.
