Biographical Sketch

I am a soil microbial ecologist that uses a combination of molecular approaches and activity measurements to link microbial community composition to function. I have worked in a variety of ecosystems including wetlands, agriculture, forests, and urban sites. Recently much of my work has involved the production and consumption of trace gases--methane and nitrous oxide. Besides natural systems, I am interested in way to improve restoration techniques to promote microbial activity.
