Susan A. Baldwin

Chemical and Biological Engineering
Faculty of Applied Science

Susan's overall research goal is environmental sustainability of Canadian society through bioremediation where active (reactor-based) and passive (natural) processes are studied that involve microbes and biomonitoring, which concerns the use of biological organisms for monitoring potential deleterious impacts from industrial and other human activities. Her expertise lies in the application of evolving quantitative molecular biology techniques such as quantitative polymerase chain reaction, gene sequencing, small subunit ribosomal RNA phylogeny and metagenomics to bioreactor monitoring and optimization.
