Jonathan Conway is an assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering. He is an expert in plant-microbe interactions and his research interests encompass several areas of study including biomolecular engineering; biotechnology; systems biology; microbiome engineering; bacterial genetics; enzymology; thermophilic microbiology; and biofuels. The Conway Lab uses genetic engineering of non-model bacteria found at plant-microbe interfaces and biomolecular engineering of their products to probe and mechanistically define consequential plant-microbe and microbe-microbe interactions. Then, using this mechanistic understanding, they engineer these bacteria, plants, and their interactions for the development of new technologies for the bio-agriculture, bioenergy, and bio-chemical industries. His affiliations include associated faculty positions at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, the High Meadows Environmental Institute, and the Omenn-Darling Bioengineering Institute.
