Postdoctoral Research Associate
Adriana L. Romero-Olivares
My main research interest is understanding how microbes adapt and evolve to global climate change. I mix-and-match traditional microbiological techniques with cutting-edge technology to assess changes to our ecosystems and to answer questions important in microbial ecosystem ecology and microbial evolution.
Ultimately, I want to provide knowledge that will help us plan and mitigate the effects of global warming on Earth, while answering long-standing questions on microbial adaptation strategies and ecosystem-level consequences on biogeochemical cycles.
