Wenke Smets studies the phyllosphere bacteria (bacteria on leaf surfaces), currently at the Koskella lab at UC Berkeley https://naturesmicrocosm.com/. An important focus of this research is the relation between bacteria of the phyllosphere and urban air pollution. As extensive bacterial communities occur on the leaves, the microbial ecology of the phyllosphere is also an important research topic.
