Soldanova is investigating the microbial activation cascades hypothesis with the goal to elucidate possible activation patterns of soil microbial communities and bring insights into microbe-mediated processes taking place in various ecosystems.
Soldanova would like her research to bring useful insights into microbial ecology and to contribute to improving current understanding of ecosystem processes and the way they affect our planet.
