Brown’s research focuses on predicting feedbacks to global change through the production and consumption of the greenhouse gasses CO2, CH4, and N2O by microorganisms across multiple ecosystems. Brown has also participated in research into carbon and nitrogen cycling by microorganisms in geothermal springs through stable isotope probing.
Brown hopes to contribute to the understanding of dynamic microbial processes through the development of innovative in-situ measuring techniques.
