My academic background is in molecular biology and microbiology. My scientific interests span a wide array of topics, but are currently centered around the ecology and evolution of microorganisms. In particular I am interested in theory developed for larger organisms as applied to bacterial communities. I am also interested i the application of new technologies in microbial community research, especially technologies that allow for the collection of good resolution time series data.
