Research : I am studying the effects of climate change on the microbes associated with the giant kelp seaweed Macrocystis pyrifera. I use Next Generation Sequencing to identify genomic variations in bacteria as a result of environmental changes.

Research: Currently looking at coral reefs off the coast of Brazil. I am comparing different macroorganisms and their influence on microbial communities 

Kristen Aguinaldo

Research: Examining the genomic content of the microbial community associated with Macrocystis pyrifera at a fine and large scale. In addition, identifying genotypic variation of microbes living on the surface of kelp versus the water column.

My research focus on microbial activity associated with the skin surface of sharks. Microbes are a ubiquitous entity in the oceans, interacting with all marine surfaces. The perpetual invasion by water column microbes has driving marine organism to develop means by which to regulate this occurrence, either harnessing the microbes for their benefit to excluding them from their surfaces. Sharks harbor a unique skin surface structure, providing an interesting model from which to base this study.

Research: I am currently working on identifying protein sequences associated with antibiotic resistance and degradation of heavy metals and pesticides present in microbial communities from a range of microbiomes. This analysis could identify whether there are reservoirs of these genes in the environment and identify whether remediation is required
