Research Areas: Investigating the ecology and evolution of microbial metabolism

Research Topic: Microorganisms interaction with environment through metabolism and how this interaction affects microbial diversity at short(ecological) and long(macroevolutionary) time scales. How the combination of genes into genomes influences their dynamics at ecosystem scales, when compared to purely gene-centric predictions. Investigation of the implications of gene and genome level processes for microbial macroevolution.
