PhD, biological and environmental engineering, Cornell University
Areas of expertise and bio
Expertise: Design and simulation of biomedical devices, modeling of biomedical processes, thermodynamics, advanced life support for space exploration
Apollo Arquiza brings a background in molecular biology, design and simulation of biomedical devices and the study of growth kinetics of species growing in microbial communities in waste. While earning his doctorate, he researched the effect of astronaut-generated garbage on health, water recovery and microbial stabilization for life support in space exploration.
