Summary

I am a molecular microbial ecologist interested in how microbial communities impact biogeochemistry and global change. I examine microbial community-environment interactions in both terrestrial and marine habitats, and bring molecular microbial research to collaborations with biogeochemists and modelers in a systems approach.

Our lab studies microbial biogeochemistry, within the "genes-to-ecosystems" framework. We use molecular microbial ecology techniques and strong partnerships with biogeochemists, informaticians, and modelers to investigate how microbes respond to, and mediate, environments undergoing anthropogenic change.
