Dominic Frigon is an Associate Professor of environmental engineering in the Civil Engineering Dept. at McGill University (Montreal, Canada). He holds BSc and MSc degrees in Microbiology from McGill (Montréal) and a Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign). He specializes in biological wastewater treatment, organic resource recovery, and biosolids safety, with emphasis on the characterization of microbial communities with metagenomics and mathematical modeling. He directs a team of several Masters and Ph.D. students currently working on innovative systems for producing biomaterials and energy from waste, for limiting the dispersal of antimicrobial resistance, and for reducing excess biosolids while improving their microbiological qualities. Finally, his work also extends to sewer systems, where his team develops strategies to engineer sewer microbial communities and impact microbial activities inside wastewater resource recovery facilities.
