Dr. Kate Buckeridge joins Billings lab

Dr. Kate Buckeridge has joined Sharon Billings' lab as a post-doctoral researcher. She is investigating the influence of climate change on soil nitrogen cycling. After receiving her Ph.D. in Paul Grogan's lab at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, she obtained NSERC funding to conduct a post-doctoral study with Dr. Josh Schimel at UC Santa Barbara. She is interested in learning how soil organic matter transformations function and feedback to climate in a multitude of environments, but has focused to date on systems in northern latitudes. In Billings' lab, she'll be working in chemostat environments hosting individual microbial populations, as well as along the Newfoundland and Labrador Boreal Ecosystem Latitudinal Transect (NL-BELT). In both of these systems, we can investigate how temperature influences microbial transformations of nitrogen, a key limiting nutrient in many terrestrial systems.
