Schuler Laboratory - University of New Mexico

Research Interests

Our research focuses on how microbial activities can be harnessed to improve environmental quality. We are particularly interested in microbial diversity and the application of molecular tools and mathematical modeling to gain a better understanding of environmental processes important to wastewater treatment and to bioremediation of contaminated soils.

A sampling of the ongoing work in our laboratory is listed below - more information is available by selecting the links below. If you would like more information about any of the projects below, or if you are interested in collaborating or working in the Schuler lab, please email me at
