Areas of Interest

We develop eco-evolutionary frameworks to study microbes and their viruses across organizational scales - individuals, populations, communities - and their roles in ecosystem function. This work is rooted in the analysis of large-scale viral/microbial omics datasets, developing model phage-host systems, and state-of-the-art laboratory and field-based study. Our research addresses two major themes: virus-microbe ecogenomics and the microbiome of plastic pollution.
