Plant-Soil Interactions

Advancing understanding of how plant and microbial interactions drive ecosystem functions

The Plant-Soil Interactions Group advances a deeper understanding of how plants, soil microorganisms, and their surrounding environment drive important ecosystem functions. We use a variety of tools and techniques to better understand the plant-soil interface, including cutting-edge experimental, modeling, and analytical approaches. Our group encompasses empiricists and modelers, ranging from early career to senior scientists—all with a shared love of the hidden world belowground and with an overarching goal to predict what the future might hold for our society.
