Description

My research focuses on the feedbacks between microbial communities and their environment with a goal towards developing a predictive understanding of how biogeochemical cycles are regulated and how human health is impacted. The general approach can be considered ‘reverse engineering’, that is deconstructing naturally occurring microbial communities with desired properties to identify the functional roles of specific microorganisms, key inter-species interactions and critical environmental or host factors that influence the assembly and maintenance of these populations.
