Cordero Lab

We study how social and ecological interactions between microorganisms impact the global function and dynamics of ecosystems. Our goal is to discover the principles that determine the efficiency, robustness and adaptability of microbial ecosystems.

Des Marais Lab

The primary focus of research in the Des Marais Lab is to understand the mechanisms of plant-environment interaction.

We use tools from molecular, quantitative and population genetics to identify the physiological basis of plant response to environmental cues, and ask how these mechanisms constrain or facilitate plant breeding and evolutionary change.

Heald Group

Our group investigates the atmospheric composition and chemistry of the global atmosphere and how this impacts air quality, climate, and environmental health. Our research focuses on biosphere-atmosphere interactions, aerosol sources and transformations, and the connections between atmospheric chemistry and climate. We use observations of the atmosphere from all scales (in situ to satellite) with global models of chemistry and climate to study these questions.

Kocar Lab


Our group measures and deciphers biogeochemical processes responsible for controlling the fate and cycling of nutrients, contaminants, and trace gases in soils, sediments, and natural waters. These biotic and biotic reactions are often chemically intertwined and transpire within complex systems containing aqueous solutions, mineral assemblages, gases, and microorganisms.

Kroll Lab

Research in the Kroll Group involves laboratory studies, fieldwork, and instrument development aimed at understanding the lifecycle (emissions, transformation, and loss) of atmospheric organic species. A central theme is the chemistry underlying the formation and evolution of organic aerosol, a major component of atmospheric fine particulate matter.

McLaughlin Lab

Welcome to the McLaughlin Group website. We are part of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Course ONE @ MIT). Our research focuses on the study of hydrology, water resources systems and environmental data assimilation. We apply theoretical and numerical methods to study:

  • the links between water and agriculture
  • the uncertainties in water flows
  • ​the competition for water resources
