Areas of Expertise and Interest:

I’m broadly interested in nutrient cycles in aquatic systems and the role of microbes in facilitating and modulating the Earth system, in particular its climate. I study how nutrient cycles have changed over time and space and the biological and chemical role aquatic systems play in shaping climate and Earth’s elemental cycles. My research to date has centered on understanding how microbe-scale processes determine broader biogeochemical cycles. My work highlights the significance of microbe-scale environmental interactions and their controls on global carbon fluxes and climate. I use targeted experiments to quantify rates of reactions, enzymatic and metabolic, and characterize community assemblages to understand their role in facilitation of geologic and environmental processes.
