Microbial Ecology, Marine Microbiology, Microbial Diversity


Updated August 1, 2010

We investigate the diversity and role of microorganisms in the environment, focusing on both prokaryotes and eukaryotes in terrestrial and marine systems. Current projects explore potential relationships between bacteria (Archaea and Bacteria) and endemic Hawaiian marine invertebrates, Hawaiian marine Fungi and yeasts as sources of novel secondary metabolites, and biogeochemistry in Hawaiian lava tubes.
