Chanlan Chun, Assistant Professor
- Ph.D., University of Minnesota
AIS Area of Interest
- Dr. Chun focuses on the roles of microbes associated with natural and engineering environment. Recently, her research focuses on the characterization of microbial and chemical contaminants in environmental systems and development of alternative solutions to restore aqueous ecosystems. She aims to develop selective and effective biocontrol agents for aquatic invasive species including Eurasian watermilfoil, Zebra mussels, and Quagga mussels by examining microorganisms associated with the AIS.
