Bio/Research

Dr. Dunfield's general areas of interest include applied soil ecology, molecular microbial ecology, and soil microbiology. The long-term objective of her research program is to study the relationship between the genetic diversity of soil microbial communities and soil ecosystem functioning.

Dunfield's research program uses established molecular biology techniques to assess how agricultural and environmental practices impact soil microbial communities, and microbially mediated soil processes, such as nitrogen cycling. This is accomplished through a number of collaborative research programs with research groups across U of G's campus.
