Nina Wurzburger, Assistant Professor
My research examines the fascinating and complex biogeochemical processes of terrestrial ecosystems. I study nutrient cycles, how they modulate the broader functioning of ecosystems and how global change adds complexity to these relationships. To this end, my research integrates fine- to coarse-grained perspectives, from the genetic diversity and physiology of soil microorganisms to elemental fluxes at the level of landscapes and biomes.
