Laura Meredith

Assistant professor, School of Natural Resources and the Environment

Dr. Meredith research focuses on microbe-mediated trace gas fluxes between the soil and atmosphere, their genomic basis, and methods to link gene to ecosystem function in the face of soil complexity and wide-ranging scales. These questions are addressed in a variety of ecosystems including urban and aridlands, green infrastructure and water harvesting systems, tropical rainforests, large-scale experimental ecosystems, and high latitude ecosystems.
