Prince Mathai, Postdoctoral Research Associate
- PhD, Marquette University
AIS Area of Interest
Dr. Mathai studies microbial communities with research interests spanning across environmental microbiology and deciphering structure-function relationships of microbial communities in natural and engineered environments. His current project is utilizing metagenomics to characterize microbial communities associated with aquatic invasive species (Eurasian watermilfoil and zebra mussels).
