In our lab, we study the factors influencing the structure and function of amphibian skin microbiomes. The microbes living on the amphibian skin can have a protective role against pathogens that have caused amphibian declines and extinctions worldwide.

Through the use of next generation sequencing technologies and classic culturing techniques, we are addressing questions aiming to understand the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms behind amphibian-microbial symbioses.
