Research

My research is focused on understanding how trace organic cofactors, such as B-vitamins, influence the structure and function of marine microbial communities. Currently, I am exploring the connections between the cellular biochemistry and environmental availability of vitamin B1 and its biochemical congeners, and the ways that this coenzyme is able to control planktonic community dynamics.
