Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
In order to address the dual threats of climate change and energy security, I endeavored to develop a novel energy production system utilizing anaerobic biodigestion of the abundant, pelagic macroalgae, Sargassum Fluitans. I worked at Princeton, together with a team of undergraduates, to analyze this novel technology, focusing on conversion pathways and nutrient provision.
