Interests and Expertise

Jacob Price is interested in studying the composition and structure of microbial communities, the between-microbe interactions within those communities, and how external/environmental forces serve to further shape and influence those behaviors. By fostering an understanding of these dynamics, he hopes to improve the ability to address many environmentally and ecologically relevant challenges, including anthropogenically-caused eutrophication of freshwater bodies and the effective treatment of waste streams.
