Research Interests:  My background is in microbial ecology and bioinformatics. I am currently focused on analyzing the response of the coral microbiota to nutrient enrichment and exclusion of herbivores.

Software:  Phylogenetic Investigation of Communities by Reconstruction of Unobserved STates (PICRUSt).  This software package predicts the bacterial and archaeal contributions to metagenomes using 16S rRNA libraries as input.
