Microbial Ecology and Ecophysiology
I am broadly interested in the role of microorganisms in the environment and how environmental changes alter the structure and function of microbial communities. I am interested in how microbial communities respond to changes in local resources (e.g., carbon, phosphorus). These responses may include differences in community composition, species interactions, and ecosystem processes. My research uses a mixture of field observations, laboratory experimentation, bioinformatics, and theory. Learn more about my active research here.
