... Her team's research program seeks to illuminate the interplay between the microbial environment and host/clinical factors in human diseases by developing and applying novel molecular and computational tools to study strainlevel dynamics of the microbiome, to understand how microbial genomes change over time, and to predict the functional output of microbiomes. She is applying these tools to support wastewater-based disease surveillance in the San Francisco Bay area both for COVID-19 as well as emerging disease.

... Gonzalez led the expansion of HRSD's research and laboratory capacity to identify the best methodological approaches to wastewater-based disease surveillance at the utility. Current projects use nucleic acid-based markers for a variety of applications, including identifying compromised sewer infrastructure and quantifying pathogen removal of various treatment trains.

... In her research, Jelks champions community science and other participatory research approaches; she trains community residents to be watershed researchers who monitor water quality and investigate local environmental conditions, giving them actionable data to press for solutions to urban watershed and community health challenges.

... Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Disease funding via the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and City of Los Angeles to support the county's COVID-19 wastewater surveillance program. Krista Wigginton is associate professor of environmental engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan.
