    Environmental microbiology and genomics Computational approaches for studying the ecology and evolution of microorganisms Development of genomic and proteomic techniques to investigate and quantify in-situ important microbial-mediated processes Population and single-cell genomics Assessing the extent and value of biodiversity within natural assemblages of Bacteria and Archaea Biotechnological applications of microbial functional diversity Environmental relevance of microbial diseases Our laboratory focuses on the smallest organisms on the planet, the bacteria and the archaea, which represent the largest reservoir of biodiversity on Earth, drive the life-sustaining biogeochemical cycles, and cause or control diseases in humans, animals, and plants. Our scientific interests are at the interface of microbial ecology with engineering and computational biology. The long-term goals of our research is to broaden understanding of the genetic and metabolic diversity of the microorganisms and to explore this biodiversity for biotechnological applications.
