About the Contributor
Dr. Hyman is a Professor of Microbiology at NC State University and has 30 years’ experience in the characterization of microbial degradation processes. His research focuses on the cometabolic biodegradation of ethers and chlorinated hydrocarbons by aerobic hydrocarbon-oxidizing bacteria and fungi. His laboratory uses physiological, genome-enabled proteomic, and stable-isotope-based approaches to characterize the enzymes, pathways, intermediates and physiological consequences of microbial cometabolism.
