Dunford’s research focuses on improving existing and developing new bioprocessing technologies; examining potential of non-food biomass as biofuel and bioproduct feedstocks; and advancing utilization of by-products/waste streams for biofuel production and value-added product development.
“Biofuels and bioproduct development research requires a multidisciplinary approach. This center brings together a group of researchers who possess diverse expertise. My goal is to contribute to the advancement of the research carried out in Oklahoma.”
