My research program strives to understand how microbial communities respond to anthropogenic influences on natural ecosystems, including changes in climate, presence of chronic ecosystem stressors, and emerging pollutants. I am particularly interested in understanding the influence of microbial communities on landscape level ecosystem processes and biogeochemical cycles. More specifically, how do hydrologic, geologic, and geochemical factors interact with microbial communities to influence microbial process dynamics and biogeochemistry in the context of changes in climate and land management.
