RESEARCH VISION My long-term goal is to develop predictive capability by tracking evolving microbial (especially cyanobacterial) populations in real time, using whole-genome and whole-community DNA sequencing to understand their evolution and predict how they adapt to changing environments. My objectives are (1) to identify the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms structuring microbial interactions and quantifying the time scales upon which these interactions occur. (2) to disentangle microbial interactions (e.g bacterial-phage or host-microbiome) and how these interactions can be impacted by environmental parameters or community dynamics. I have a background in molecular biology, viral experimental evolution and microbial evolutionary genomics. I split my time between fieldwork, developing novel experimental approach to explore cyanobacterial population and analyzing 'omic data.
