Studies the roles, interactions and management of microbes in agricultural and engineered systems. These environments/systems include: animal waste management systems (e.g., manure, anaerobic digesters, lagoons, compost); aquaculture systems (e.g., biofilters and bioflocs); animal guts; and plant rhizosphere.
