I am broadly interested in understanding if and how soil microbial diversity is important for biogeochemical processes. Using models to integrate meta-omic and community process data from long term warming studies with bacterial isolate genome and physiological profiling, I assess how climate change affects the niche space occupied by dominant soil microbes.
