Research Interests

My work intersects the disciplines of microbial ecology and terrestrial ecosystem ecology. In particular, I am interested in understanding the role of microbial communities in terrestrial ecosystem processes. Recent research focuses on the biogeography of soil microbial communities, the impacts of global change factors (N deposition, climate change) on microbial communities/processes, and the assessment of microbial community structure (including archaea, fungi, bacteria, and viruses) in soil and other microbial habitats.
