Researching the role of metabolites in the microbial communities of plants and algae

My research centers around microbial communities associated with two biofuels relevant systems: algae and switchgrass. I am investigating the role of metabolite exudation in beneficial microbial community recruitment and structuring by algae and plants. I am using a combination of targeted and untargeted metabolomics approaches to understand metabolite exchange and interactions within these systems.
