Marine microbes are fundamental in many global cycles like the carbon and oxygen cycles. However, microbes never live alone in the environment. In recent years we have begun to realize that interactions between microbes shape our ocean, atmosphere and climate.
Our group takes 'big' environmental questions and addresses them using simplified model-systems in the lab that allow us to study microbial interactions using cutting-edge technologies. We apply advanced genetic tools, NextGen approaches, microscopy, chemistry and various methods that we adopt from the Earth sciences. Through our unique combination of approaches from the Life and Earth sciences, we increasingly understand how microbes influence each other and our oceans in present, past, and future environments.
If you are interested in environmental topics, and would like to develop your research skills using advanced technologies, come talk to us.
We welcome curious and creative people that wish to hear more!
