Most student research in my lab has focused on the legume-rhizobium symbiosis, leading to fundamental insights on the evolution of microbial cooperation and possible applications to improving agricultural sustainability. Other student research and collaborations (especially with Mike Travisano) have extended from microbial bet- hedging to the evolution of aging and multicellularity.
