About

My work utilizes high-throughput sequencing approaches to explore broad patterns in microbial eukaryote assemblages (biodiversity and biogeography, functional roles for microbial taxa, and the relationship between species and environmental parameters), with a focus on free-living nematodes in marine sediments
