Research Interests:
My research focuses on microbiomes from many different environments. I aim to incorporate all types of microbes, bacteria, fungi, protists, etc, in my analyses. I am particularly interested in ways to analyze the “-omics” data in ways that give more information that which microbes are present. This can take the form of interaction networks, ecological theory models, multi-directional clustering, and more.
