Dr. Paul Magyar - Research Interests

I am interested in using stable isotopes to track microbial processes, particularly in the nitrogen cycle.  In my Ph.D work I developed a new stable isotope tool, nitrous oxide clumped isotopes, and applied it to investigating natural nitrous oxide sources.

Currently I am exploring the use of stable isotopes to describe microbial processes in pilot wastewater treatment reactors.
