The Stadler lab research group at Rice University focuses on advancing resource recovery from wastewater. We combine microbial ecology, environmental microbiology, process engineering, and sustainability assessment to study used water (wastewater) treatment systems, resource recovery, and their impact on the environment and human health.

The Stadler Lab also works closely with Houston Public Works and the Houston Health Department to generate essential wastewater monitoring data for the City of Houston. Testing sites include wastewater treatment plants, lift stations, schools, nursing homes, jails, and shelters.
