We focus on environmental microbiology and biotechnology in the Department of Soil, Water, and Climate as well as the BioTechnology Institute at the University of Minnesota. The lab is located in Snyder Hall on the beautiful St. Paul campus.
The goal of my lab is to solve environmental problems by using the power of microbes. Our recent research focuses include (1) the bioremediation of inorganic nutrients, especially nitrogen and phosphorus, (2) nitrogen fixing microbes associated with non-legume plants, (3) the response of microbiome to environmental changes, and (4) the ecology of pathogens and antibiotic resistant bacteria.
