Dr. Bradley’s research focuses on creating sustainable biological processes to address needs in engineered and natural systems for water and wastewater treatment and resource recovery. He is interested in nutrient management and transforming resource consuming technologies into resource producers through nutrient recovery and biomaterials and bioenergy generation. His work utilizes molecular methods along with laboratory and field experimentation to link microbial community structure and function with design and operational parameters of complex systems. His group applies molecular tools to a wide range of systems - from biological wastewater treatment - to natural systems like the Great Lakes. Dr. Bradley is also interested in sustainable water treatment in a global context, and in how biological processes can offer low-input, decentralized treatment to areas that need it most.
