Research Description

My lab works at the interface between microbiology, ecosystem ecology, and global change. We study how microbes ?make a living? in the environment, and how they affect ecosystem processes, such as the break-down of dead plant material and the cycling of nutrients. Student projects may focus on field work, laboratory studies, and/or computer modeling. Summer and academic year positions are available.

Requirements to Participate

Students should be prepared to develop independent projects and spend at least 10 hours per week on research. A multi-quarter commitment is strongly preferred, and students will be expected to participate in lab activities and meetings.
