Ashley Keiser

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow associated with the Hofmockel lab. I am an ecologist working at the interface of above- and below-ground communities. My interests include ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, climate change, and invasive species. Through my research program, I examine local, mechanism-driven questions, which have advanced ecological theory regarding microbial community function, and landscape-level biogeochemical inquiries that relate to land management. Overall, my work builds on our understanding of how soil decomposer community function will change with shifting plant communities and climate. This is critical for creating realistic C and N budgets at local and regional scales. Because this work examines biogeochemical effects across the landscape, it will help us to better understand impacts to hydrological and atmospheric systems as well as human populations. Ultimately, I hope that my work will contribute to more informed land-use and policy decisions.
