Steve McAllister is a Graduate Teaching Fellow at University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon. He is a leader of the John S. Reed Club - the Lane County organizational hub of the Communist Party USA. He is the partner of Jillian Littell.
McAllister is researching the role of microbial community structure in controlling biogeochemical processes. He is currently studying methanogensis in a variety of northern Michigan peatlands, measuring the rates of two major pathways of methane production and linking this to a deep survey of community structure using environmental DNA sequencing. He is also working on a survey of functional gene transcription to quantify community activity as well as structure in this system.
