The primary interest of our laboratory is to learn how bacterial physiology is shaped by the environment and to identify microbial interactions within the phyllosphere. We perform structure/function analyses at different hierarchical scales, from the level of key proteins, to individual cells, to bacterial communities, to the ecosystem. Our research involves a range of disciplines and approaches, including functional genomics, metaproteogenomics, and systems and synthetic biology, as well as novel tools in nanotechnology.

Our primary areas of interest include:
