Welcome to the Soil Microbial Ecology Lab at UW!

I recently joined the Soils group at the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at the University of WyomingMy research interests lie in the field of ecosystem science with a focus on the role of the microbial community in biogeochemical processes such as nutrient and carbon cycling

Emily was awarded a grant from the Western SARE Program for her Proposal "The critical role of soil microbiota to sustainable agriculture". Congrats!   

High school student Conway presented his poster at the EPSCoR SRAP symposium at UW on "The effects of Pasture vs. Alfalfa crop on Meiofauna and microarthropod diversity and distribution". Conway joined the lab for 6 weeks this summer under the guidance of Emily

Gordon presented his first poster at the Soil Ecology Society meeting in Fort Collins.

Stephanie joined the lab as a MS student and will be working on research at the Rogers Research Station, focusing on the effects of restoration treatments after a wildfire on soil ecology and vegetation dynamics.

Zoe was awarded a 2017 Roy J. Shlemon Center for Quaternary Studies Project and Mentoring Award for her Proposal "Aeolian influence on soil evolution in high-alpine permafrost affected ecosystems”. Congrats!
