Professor Hong’s research interests include molecular microbiology and microbial aspects in water and wastewater ecosystems. The main motivation of her research is driven by the need to address water scarcity issues worldwide. Her research program aims to encourage the use of treated wastewater through a two way approach: (i) understanding the microbial safety concerns related to wastewater reuse, and (ii) developing anaerobic membrane bioreactor to improve quality of treated wastewater.
