Projects

The lab studies all sorts of questions related to microbes, nutrients, and/or water.

Most project focus on three main topics: (1) understanding nitrogen cycling microbial ecology and biogeochemistry in aquatic ecosystems, (2) studying the ecology and physiology of novel archaea in aquatic ecosystems, and (3) tracing the sources of antibiotic resistance to rural and urban ecosystems.

More detail will be put here soon! For now, enjoy some pictures of some of the beautiful places we sample…
