Environmental Specialist II, Stericycle

Kitchen Preparation Team Member, Specialty's Bakery

Research Interests:

I am studying resource recovery from wastewater and food waste using anaerobic membrane bioreactors (AnMBRs). I would like to understand the effects of different operating conditions on the effluent profiles of AnMBRs digesting wastewater and food waste. I am interested in optimizing this effluent profile for valorization downstream of the AnMBR.

Other Interests:

I'm an avid reader and listener of music. I follow the Seattle Mariners and Seattle Seahawks.
