Josh Neufeld (Biology) is an ecologist who characterizes microbial communities in terrestrial, aquatic, and host-associated habitats. By developing and combining cultivation-dependent and molecular techniques, his lab explores the “microbes that matter” to connect these novel microorganisms with the important roles that they play in their communities. His passion for microbiology and its communication has resulted in authorship of a microbiology textbook, multiple teaching awards, and service as Chief Editor for The ISME Journal.

 

 

Maria StrackMaria Strack (Geography and Environmental Management) is a Canada Research Chair in Ecosystems and Climate who leads an internationally recognized research program investigating greenhouse gas exchange in peatland ecosystems - the world’s largest natural terrestrial carbon stores. This work includes participation in some of the first peatland reclamation projects in Alberta’s oil sands. She works closely with industry, government and non-governmental organizations to translate her findings into improved land management in the face of climate change.
