Amisha Poret-Peterson

Title Post-doctoral Research Scientist

My interests lie in microbial ecology and physiology. During my graduate research, I studied the affect of ammonia and other nitrogen compounds on gene expression by a methane-oxidizing bacterium. Here at ASU, my research interests have expanded to the study of microbes in extreme environments, such as hot springs. I am interested in the processes of denitrification and C1 metabolism in these environments.
