Welcome to the homepage of the Soil Microbial Ecology Laboratory! The laboratory is engaged in a wide range of research activities, most of which focus on the response of natural microbial communities at the intersection of different biogeochemical cycles. Cycles such as the nitrogen, phosphorus, and carbon cycles should not be viewed as isolated cycles, but rather as coupled cycles with shifting components along environmental gradients. We are particularly interested in the impacts of different nutrient availabilities on the coupled nitrogen and carbon cycles, and associated processes such as mercury cycling.
