1. How can microbial metabolic capabilities be harnessed to correct, or proactively prevent, harm to natural ecosystems?
2. As the Anthropocene progresses, how are we changing the ecology of microbial communities and microbial processes, particularly through altered land use and climate change?
We collaborate with engineers, geochemists, chemists and other biologists to address many specific questions related these overarching areas. See more information about ongoing research projects.
