Overview

Dr. Ann Wilkie will present research and field work underway

at the UF Bioenergy & Sustainable Technology Laboratory,

including work by a student composting cooperative and her

research on biogas and algae biofuels. Dr. Wilkie’s specialty is

bioenergy and sustainable technology, with particular

emphasis on anaerobic processes and biomass to biofuel

conversion. Dr. Wilkie is an internationally recognized expert

in biogas technology and has conducted leading research on

the practical application of anaerobic digestion for waste

treatment and renewable energy production from biomass and

organic residues, including livestock waste, food waste,

bioethanol and biodiesel by-products, and other waste

streams. Her current projects include diverting food waste

from landfills for biogas production and bioprospecting of

oleaginous algae for biodiesel production.
