Dr. Wilm Martens-Habbena

Microbial Ecology

My research is at the intersection of microbiology, molecular biology and biogeochemistry. The primary goal is to understand how microorganisms drive and connect biogeochemical cycles on earth and how we can harness their power to the benefit of humanity and the environment.  My current research aims to understand how global change and sea level rise affect local communities and the environment in South Florida and how microbiology can help to mitigate these challenges.
