Welcome to My Site

I received my PhD in 1978 from The University of Texas at Austin with Bob Tabita studying the enzyme RuBisCO from Rhodospirillum rubrum.  I continued my research on autotrophic prokaryotes during my postdoctoral studies with Ralph Wolfe on the methane-producing Archaea.  I joined the Department of Microbiology at the University of Georgia in 1982.  My laboratory uses an integrated approach to understand the nature of free-living prokaryotes of environmental importance.
