Diana Aga leads a team that studies how various contaminants affect the environment. Her lab investigates techniques for removing antibiotics from wastewater; how plants — especially food crops — take up pharmaceuticals and engineered nanomaterials; and how levels of veterinary antibiotics in manure decrease over time through long-term storage or waste-disposal processes like composting and anaerobic digestion.

Dr. Aga is currently a Co-Principal Investigator for the NSF grant award: Advancing Technologies and Improving Communication of Urine-Derived Fertilizers for Food Production within a Risk-Based Framework.
