welcome to the Halden laboratory

Among the greatest challenges to human society are access to safe drinking water, clean air, healthy food, and renewable energy sources protecting from adverse climate change.

We conduct use-inspired research to meet these major global challenges. With our work, we seek to avoid or minimize:

  • Environmental pollution,
  • Human exposure to toxic chemicals and
  • Depletion of natural resources including drinking water and fossil fuels.


To meet our objectives, we harness the power of sustainable chemistry, microbiological systems and renewable bioenergy sources.

Our research group is housed in ASU’s Biodesign Institute, a state-of-the-art facility and the first platinum LEED certified building in the state of Arizona. The Biodesign Institute is one of the key initiatives of the New American University.
