My research area is ecology of functional communities in the nitrogen cycle. The work ranges from theoretical studies examining genomes, fundamental questions in community ecology based on experiments or natural gradients and applied research with relevance for agriculture, climate, and the environment. The aim is to understand relationships between the ecology of the microbial communities, the biogeochemical processes they perform and the corresponding ecosystem functions.
