My current research is uses live Raman microspectroscopy to characterize transitions in microbial communities, while attempting to identify the chemical components that underpin these changes – the goal being to recognize and reliably predict these transitions in real-time. I hope to take a systems biology approach to unveiling the control parameters of wild microbial systems, using them to gain a mechanistic understanding of the elements of repeatability, determinism, and fate in these communities, with particular regard to primary succession and secondary perturbations.
