Genetics and Society

My primary research focuses on the diversity of bacteria and fungi in unusual environments. These projects aim to determine the variety of microorganisms present in unique ecosystems and correlate those populations with the geochemical properties of the specific environment. I am also very interested in the interaction of science and society with particular focus on genetics education.
