Chen Zhou PhD
Current Assistant Research Professor, Rittmann Lab
My research focuses on managing microbial communities to provide services on sustainable closed-loop processes. To be more specific, I am working on bacteria mediated removal, recovery and reuse. This requires interdisciplinary partnership, which is enabled in the Swette Center owing to its famous culture of cross-disciplinary and team-based research. In addition, our seed project on palladium has made several milestone achievements including three literature publications, one international PCT patent application and formation of one company. These would not have been possible without the Swette Endowment.
