Physiology and functional genomics of dissimilatory metal-reducing bacteria; Microbial interactions with electrodes

Bio

Daniel Bond is interested in the interface between microbiology and electricity. His lab studies the molecular and genetic basis for this metabolism, develops strategies to harness microbes for the capture of energy, and explores how this ability can be used at the bioelectrical interface. In his research, Daniel integrates microbial physiology, molecular biology, genetics, electrochemistry, genomics, and bioinformatics to unravel the complexities of electron transfer at the core of applications such as water treatment, desalination, and sensing.
