Research in my lab is driven by an interest in understanding how photosynthetic microorganisms perceive and evolve in response to environmental stressors, such as light, nutrients and viral attack. We focus on cyanobacteria which are abundant, globally relevant and have been used to probe environmentally important processes ranging from photosynthesis to symbioses to circadian rhythms. We work both with model organisms and with cyanobacteria in naturally occurring communities.
 
Current projects which are inter-related and inter-disciplinary include:
