As a microbial ecologist, I am interested in the organization of microbial systems, and how essential functions are coordinated and maintained over space and time. My research aims to achieve a fundamental understanding of microbial physiology, and opportunities to translate that knowledge into multi-disciplinary solutions for intractable environmental challenges.
