Beyond traditional wastewater treatment design approaches, Ryan’s goal is to integrate genomic information on the metabolic capacity and structure of microbial communities into treatment process modelling, design, and control. His research utilizes advanced molecular sequencing tools, such as metagenomics, to recover the genomes of non-cultivable microbes for the identification of new metabolic pathways. Ultimately, he seeks to integrate microbial community genomic data into new mechanistic models to predict pollutant transformation in a variety of natural and engineered systems.
