Steven harnesses the awesome power of environmental genomics to explore the microcosmos, describing microbial community structure and function across a wide range of natural and human engineered ecosystems. Each of his projects shares a core set of interdisciplinary tools sourced from ecology, molecular biology, genetics and computer science, and each views microbial community members as cellular constituents within the body of an ecosystem providing essential nutritional, energetic or detoxification services through distributed networks of metabolite exchange and feedback regulation.
