Interest AreasDr. Brumm's previous research emphasized the economic value of grain quality characteristics. He developed processing models to predict the value of end-products derived from grain and oilseeds. He is expanding his research efforts to include biorenewables. His research goals include (1) predicting the value of products derived from various biorefinery processes, (2) examining biorefinery systems (e.g., from field to fuel), identifying and correcting inefficiencies; and (3) working collaboratively with industry and other faculty to address critical needs in the expanding bioeconomy.
