Research Interests

Research in the Clark lab is in the field of biochemical engineering with particular emphasis on enzyme technology and bioactive materials, extremophiles and extreme enzymes, cell culture, and metabolic flux analysis. Current research interests include biocatalysis in novel environments, enzyme engineering, the cultivation and genomics of thermophiles and barophiles, and the integration of p450 into bioengineered systems. The Clark lab is extremely active in all areas of biofuels research from feedstock breakdown to fuels synthesis.
