Research Interests. I'm an environmental chemist who has spent the past decade working with microbiologists, and I’m enjoying every minute of it. I pursue research questions that explore the connections between microbial communities and their environments, as well as the connections among microbes within a microbiome. Currently, this includes engineered systems for bioenergy production, and microbial communities out in nature, such as microbes growing on hops flowers, or anaerobic benthic microbial communities responding to perturbations. The tools I specialize in for addressing these kinds of questions are high-throughput molecular techniques including metagenomic sequencing and proteomics. As a professor at a primarily undergraduate institution, I’m also dedicated to making sure the research in my lab provides in-depth and meaningful research experiences for SUNY Cortland undergraduate students.
