A new member of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Tulane University, Nicholas R. Sandoval, is establishing a research program that centers on genome engineering non-model microbes for biofuel and biochemical production. Dr. Sandoval earned his PhD in 2011 at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department where he investigated combinatorial recombination techniques in E. coli. After spending a year as a lecturer at Colorado Mesa University, he went on to do postdoctoral work at the University of Delaware.
