Biography

My research focuses on topics within microbial ecology and evolution. Areas of interest include microbial diversity, factors that shape microbial communities, microbial evolution and antibiotic resistance. Recent projects include characterization of microbial communities in sulfidic salt springs, the effect of bacterial secondary metabolites on microbial competition and development of a transformation system for the anther smut fungus (Microbotryum).
