Microbial Interactions and Functional Diversity

Microbes fascinate me. They can make a living almost anywhere, exhibit complex social lives, and influence the environment on a global scale, all despite their microscopic size. My research in environmental microbial ecology focuses on understanding the ecological processes and mechanisms that govern microbial interactions, including among microbes and between microbes and the environment.
