We work to understand the interactions of microbes with their environments and with each other, particularly in soil systems. Questions of interest include:
How do microbial activities impact other microbes in their local environment?
How do microbes respond and adapt to natural and accidental environmental changes?
How do certain genes influence environmental fitness?
We use the techniques of microbiology, genetics, and genomics to build our understanding of microbial biology.
