Research Interests

I am broadly interested in the role of microbes and their viruses in global chemical cycling and the factors that influence community structure. Specifically, I am interested in identifying active cells in natural environments and understanding the differences between the cells that are contributing to ecological processes and those that are dormant or inactive in marine environments. My research utilizes a combination of fieldwork with advanced flow cytometry and next-generation sequencing to identify these microbes and the processes that they are driving.
