I am a microbial community ecologist and evolutionary biologist, working at scales that range from microbial strains and individual hosts to ecosystems. My primary research interests include the diversity, stability, and function of mutualisms; the context-dependent roles of microbes in host health and survival; and the extent to which selection on microbes influences host response to environmental disturbance.
