Research

Dr. Sabalowsky’s prior research expertise are in anaerobic processes, specifically as they relate to bioremediation of hazardous xenobiotic molecules and biofuel production, such has methane and hydrogen production, microbial fuel cells, and fermentable products. More recently, his interests are in renewable energy technology centered on fluid flow, such as wave attenuation, micro wind turbines, and solar chimneys.
