Research interests

I am interested in understanding the role of microorganisms in biogeochemical cycles including iron and copper cycles. Currently, I would like to understand how aerobic ammonia oxidizing archaea isolated from soil environments acquire copper for their nitrogen metabolism. Previous research focused on understanding the types of microorganisms involved in Fe and N-cycling in marine sediments and bacterial Fe-reduction and As-mobilization.For more information about me and my research please follow the links below:
