My general interest lies in understanding ecosystem scale processes through the lens of soil microbial ecology. Soil microbial community growth, composition, and activity can be important indicators of soil quality, sustainability, and soil recovery to disturbance. I’m especially interested in how soil microbial community dynamics can inform our understanding of ecosystem functions such as carbon cycling and sustainability under global change and other human influences.
