Research Interests

Physiology of members of the methanogenic archaea (the methanogens), microbial metabolism, anaerobic microbiology.


Kyle Costa is interested in microbial metabolism with a focus on anaerobic processes. Specifically, the Costa lab seeks to characterize pathways for the utilization of diverse electron donors in methanogenic Archaea and understand the redox properties and biochemical reactions of phenazine metabolites.
