Our ultimate goal is to develop tools to control microbial nitrogen transformations, thus minimizing the nitrogen footprints and climate forcing of food production.  


To achieve this, we need fundamental research on the ecophysiology and regulatory biology of the microbes managing reactive nitrogen in the biosphere.    


Our applied research includes collaborative projects with agriculture-, fertilizer-, mining-, and wastewater-industries.


We have developed robotized incubation systems for lab-scale investigations of aerobic and anaerobic respiratory metabolism, and a field robot for measuring gas fluxes in field experiments.
