The imprint of humans on terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems
I am a biogeochemist who studies the movement of carbon and nitrogen through forests and the streams that drain them. I am particularly interested in mechanisms of soil organic matter stabilization, mineral-organic associations, and redox-sensitive biogeochemistry. Using tools from ecology and geochemistry, I examine these topics on scales ranging from the soil pedon to whole watersheds. I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in the Bernhardt Lab at Duke University.
