My Story

I study nature through the lens of chemistry. Elements make up all living and non-living material and how elements move through ecosystems can have profound implications for ecosystem structure and function. In my research, I combine techniques from biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology to understand processes that influence elemental flows into and through ecosystems particular vulnerable to nutrient pollution: lakes and streams.
