Brandon Paul Kieft

Postdoctoral Fellow

 

Microbial communities are harnessed in a variety of anthropogenic processes, including waste-to-energy conversion and pollution cleanup. Despite their widespread use, characteristics of complex microbial communities, including which populations are active and the functions they perform, are poorly understood. As a microbial ecologist, I use large datasets of DNA, RNA, and protein sequences to understand how microbes accomplish desirable industrial-scale biomass conversions such as renewable natural gas production from wastewater and breakdown of agricultural wastes to fertilizers and energy.
