Eoin Brodie is a Staff Scientist in the Ecology Department of the Earth Sciences Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of California, Berkeley in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management. His research focuses on the feedbacks between microbial communities and their environment with a goal towards developing a predictive understanding of how biogeochemical cycles are regulated and how human health is impacted. The general approach can be considered ‘reverse engineering’, that is deconstructing naturally occurring microbial communities with desired properties to identify the functional roles of specific microorganisms, key inter-species interactions and critical environmental or host factors that influence the assembly and maintenance of these populations.
