The overarching goals of our research are to determine how microbes interact with contaminants at the cellular level and to evaluate the consequences of these interactions at the ecosystem level. We are interested in how microbes sense and transform metals, particularly for detoxification, as well as how this information can be applied to the development of novel analytical and bioremediation tools.
