Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

His primary scientific interests are in Nitrification, Environmental chemistry, Biofilm, Ecology and Bacteria. His Nitrification research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Denitrification, Nuclear chemistry, Metal and Anoxic waters. The concepts of his Environmental chemistry study are interwoven with issues in Nitrogen, Microorganism, Wastewater, Anammox and Bioreactor.

His studies deal with areas such as Biomass, Ammonium and Denitrifying bacteria as well as Biofilm. His Ecology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Microbial ecology and Extracellular polymeric substance. His Bacteria study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Plasmid, Biophysics, Microbiology and Escherichia coli.

His most cited work include:

  • Challenges in microbial ecology: building predictive understanding of community function and dynamics (390 citations)
  • Physical constraints affecting bacterial habitats and activity in unsaturated porous media – a review (390 citations)
  • Variability in kinetic parameter estimates: A review of possible causes and a proposed terminology (244 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Barth F. Smets focuses on Environmental chemistry, Biofilm, Environmental engineering, Nitrification and Microbiology. His work in Environmental chemistry addresses subjects such as Nitrite, which are connected to disciplines such as Inorganic chemistry. His study looks at the intersection of Biofilm and topics like Autotroph with Nitrogen removal.

His Environmental engineering research includes themes of Waste management, Anammox and Nutrient. As part of one scientific family, Barth F. Smets deals mainly with the area of Nitrification, narrowing it down to issues related to the Bioreactor, and often Chromatography. Barth F. Smets has included themes like Plasmid and Pseudomonas putida, Bacteria in his Microbiology study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental chemistry (26.59%)
  • Biofilm (18.02%)
  • Environmental engineering (16.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Environmental chemistry (26.59%)
  • Nitrite (11.43%)
  • Nitrous oxide (5.49%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Environmental chemistry, Nitrite, Nitrous oxide, Biofilm and Sewage treatment are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Environmental chemistry brings together such families of science as Nitrification, Denitrification, Denitrifying bacteria, Hydroxylamine and Aeration. His study looks at the relationship between Nitrite and fields such as Ammonium, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His work deals with themes such as Anammox, Environmental engineering, Moving bed and Microbial population biology, which intersect with Biofilm. He interconnects Waste management and Phase in the investigation of issues within Environmental engineering. His study in Microbiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Wastewater, Plasmid and Bacteria.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Comparative genomics sheds light on niche differentiation and the evolutionary history of comammox Nitrospira (89 citations)
  • Comammox Nitrospira are abundant ammonia oxidizers in diverse groundwater-fed rapid sand filter communities (82 citations)
  • Metal stressors consistently modulate bacterial conjugal plasmid uptake potential in a phylogenetically conserved manner. (55 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Bacteria
  • Ecology
  • Oxygen

Barth F. Smets mainly investigates Environmental chemistry, Nitrous oxide, Denitrification, Nitrification and Nitrite. His studies in Environmental chemistry integrate themes in fields like Environmental engineering, Activated sludge, Sewage treatment, Biofilm and Denitrifying bacteria. His study looks at the relationship between Biofilm and topics such as Aeration, which overlap with Rotating biological contactor and Trickling filter.

Comammox and Nitrospira are the primary areas of interest in his Nitrification study. His Nitrite research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ammonia, Ammonium and Nitrogen. His Nitrogen study incorporates themes from Inorganic chemistry and Sequencing batch reactor.
