Research Description

My lab works at the interface between microbiology, ocean ecosystem ecology, and global change. In particular, we are interested in understanding the present and future global distribution of marine cyanobacteria and how they will respond to ocean warming. This includes how cyanobacteria will evolve and adapt to new environments. Student projects could include lab work using culturing and molecular techniques (e.g. PCR), DNA sequence analysis, and modeling.

Requirements to Participate

Students should be prepared to work with other group member as well as develop independent projects, Students will be expected to participate in lab activities and meetings.

Time Commitment per Week

10 hrs/wk

Faculty Means of Evaluation

Grades will be based on time committed to the project and the quality of research.
