Nathaniel is a visiting summer student participating in the Basic and Environmental Soil Science Training (BESST) REU program.  He’s a rising senior at Cornell majoring in Biology and has interests in how different microbes mediate carbon and nitrogen cycling, and how trace-metal availability impacts these cycles.  This summer he’ll be investigating  microbial diversity and siderophore production in soil and water samples collected from different locations across North Carolina.
