A transdiciplinary team of microbiologists, archaeologists, and paleogenomicists studying how microbiomes adapt and evolve in real time.
Our Research Topics
We explore how and why microbial communities change and adapt through time. Our research team is founded on five main pillars of research that survey microbial communities in anything from Antarctic ice to a human tooth.
Exploring ancient human microbiota evolution and adaptation over time
Examining ancient animal microbiota to learn about their health and diet
Studying soils, sediments, calcite, and ice to learn about the biolgoical past
Working with living people to improve dental health in the future
Using mouse and in-vitro models to explore microbial adaptations
