Interests and Expertise

I’m 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 furthering our understanding of these dynamics, I hope to improve our ability to address a number of environmentally and ecologically relevant challenges, including anthropogenically-caused eutrophication of freshwater bodies and the effective treatment of waste streams.
