Academic background


Summary of research

I am broadly interested in the use of molecular genetics to address environmental questions, particularly questions concerning microbial ecology and diversity. This includes gene biogeography, gene expression, enzyme activity, microscale localization, physiological analyses, and genetic characterization of individual cells and populations in field sites. I am interested in interdisciplinary studies, for example with ecologists, civil / environmental engineers and analytical chemists who are applying biological technologies to environmental problems. I am also interested in the characterization of interesting microbial isolates.
