We study the biogeochemical cycles of terrestrial ecosystems. Our approach integrates fine to coarse grained perspectives of ecosystems and how they function: from the genetic diversity and physiology of soil microorganisms to elemental fluxes at the level of landscapes and biomes. Recent and ongoing work in the lab includes examinations of how global change factors (climate and land-use) influence the biogeochemical cycles of temperate, tropical and arctic ecosystems.
