Research InterestsI am interested in the microbial communities found in water. I am currently looking at community composition and the impact of development and human recreational use on the Norris Lake reservoir. I am also researching the community composition in a series of alkaline lakes in western Nebraska. I would like to complete a comparison between the Nebraska Lakes, Lake Norris and Reelfoot Lake in Western Tennessee. Once the communities are identified I will begin looking at specific members of the communities for secreted proteins and adaptations for unique environmental conditions.
