      I am currently working on two super interesting projects that have developed from my astrobiology research:
      1) Trying to identify microbes that are growing in nickel-contaminated wastewater (it is bright green) to see if we can use them to capture the nickel.

      2) Trying to see if microbes from the extreme environments we work with produce any interesting chemicals that could be used as antibiotics.
