A critical aspect to predicting the breadth and magnitude of the impact of climate change in the Arctic is elucidating how the organisms endemic to this region are being affected. As in the majority of ecosystems on Earth, the most abundant and diverse groups of biological entities in the Arctic are the microbes. The overarching objective of my research program is to characterize the diversity and dynamics of viruses that infect microbes and elucidate their role in Arctic microbial ecology.
