Summary

Associate professor of Biology and Earth and Planetary Sciences; member of the Center for Astrophysical Sciences; co-founder and director of the Institute for Planets and Life. We use extremophiles to address fundamental questions in biology, in particular mechanisms underlying the diversity of microbial communities, their functioning, and their responses to environmental perturbations. At the molecular level, we use archaeal model systems to investigate adaptive mechanisms to environmental stresses.
