Jolie LoBruttoGraduate Student

Published by Alanna Patterson on Bruce Hungate

    Jolie is a PhD student at the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society (ECOSS) and
    works under the advisement of Dr. Bruce Hungate. A particular curiosity to dive deep
    into the microscopic world driving Earth’s carbon cycle in soil has led her to study how
    soils microbes respond to climate change effects like warming and precipitation
    changes. Using quantitative stable isotope probing (qSIP) and other ‘omics tools, she
    hopes to better understand how microorganisms influence carbon fluxes by
    investigating community dynamics.
