Postdoctoral Research Associate 

Adriana L. Romero-Olivares


We explore how fungi respond and adapt to global climate change to assess impacts to our ecosystems and to answer questions important in microbial ecosystem ecology and microbial evolution. Our main goal is to provide knowledge that will help us plan and mitigate the effects of global warming on Earth, while answering long-standing questions on microbial ecology and ecosystem-level consequences on biogeochemical cycles.  

We are in the Department of Biology at New Mexico State University
