Our laboratory is part of the Microbial Sciences Institute and the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Yale University. Our work lies at the interface between systems biology and microbial community ecology and evolution. An important focus of the lab is understanding how the molecules microbes secrete to the environment, such as nutrients, toxins, etc., mediate the assembly and the evolution of microbial communities.
