Dr. Wang’s research interests include environmental microbiology, water quality, and the application of biotechnologies in engineering systems. She specifically focuses on the following areas: (i) develop biotechnology to improve more sustainable wastewater treatment processes to reduce health risks and minimize the energy consumption and carbon footprint; (ii) investigate the development of antibiotic resistant bacteria and antibiotic resistance genes in natural and urban environments. Her current research focuses on novel treatment technologies for decentralized wastewater and biological remediation of groundwater with contaminants of emerging concerns. The research includes bioreactor operation and microbial function analyses involved in the natural/engineered treatment system.
