People

An inter-disciplinary team focused on understanding microbial communities in the environment.

To address the ambitious challenges that define PriME’s vision we need an integration of disciplines. Our team brings together microbiologists, physicists, engineers, biogeochemists, and theoretical ecologists, who collaborate closely to understand the principles underpinning the dynamics and function of microbial communities.
