Interests/expertise: Basic, molecular biology and ‘omic techniques are used to gain a better understanding of the adaptation of environmental microorganisms to perturbed ecosystems. Microbial analyses range from examination of the entire community to the identification and tracking of specific bacteria and genes. Perturbed ecosystems currently being studied are human/animal guts, stream and lake water exposed to urban and rural inputs, and agricultural fields subjected to different agronomic practices.
