Dr Abbaszadegan joined ASU in 1999 having spent more than six years as a Microbiology Research Manager in private industry. His research interest is in health-related water microbiology. He has developed an Environmental Microbiology course (CEE 467/567) for the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. In addition to teaching and research activities, Dr. Abbaszadegan successfully established a National Science Foundation Water Quality Center at ASU, and he serves as the PI and the Director of the Center. The center has provided research resources and capabilities to the participating members in a variety of water quality arenas.
