Luciana Pereyra has a B.S. in Food Engineering from National University of Mar del Plata and a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University. She performed her doctoral research on the biomolecular characterization of the microbial communities responsible for the remediation of mining-influenced water in passive anaerobic treatment systems. An important contribution of her research was the development of a method to quantify genetic biomarkers of key microbial functions involved in the remediation process. Dr. Pereyra also conducted postdoctoral research at Colorado State University and Lund University (Sweden) in the areas of biofuels from microalgae and industrial biotechnology, respectively. Her interests include potable reuse and biological processes in water and wastewater treatment.
