Research

research overview

  • Dr. Fierer works across multiple disciplines to develop new insights into the structure of microbial communities, the fundamental controls on microbial processes, and importance of microorganisms in regulating the health and productivity of plants, animals, and ecosystems. In particular, his lab group has focused on two basic questions: What factors regulate microbial diversity patterns?, and, How can we use information on microbial diversity to better understand their function in the environment? To address these questions, his lab group has conducted research on microorganisms living in a range of environments, including soil, the human body, leaf surfaces, buildings, and the atmosphere.
