The impacts of humans on terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems
I am a biogeochemist who follows the movement of carbon, nitrogen and other elements through soils and the streams that drain them. I am particularly interested in mechanisms of soil organic matter stabilization, mineral-organic associations, redox-sensitive processes, and hydrologically-integrated biogeochemical understanding. Using tools from ecology, hydrology and geochemistry, I examine these topics on scales ranging from the soil profile to large river basins. My first love is forests, but I am broadly interested in human-impacted ecosystems.
I will be joining the faculty of the Earth Science department at the University at Buffalo in Fall 2020. I am currently a postdoc in Nandita Basu's lab at the University of Waterloo and a former Ph.D. student of Emily Bernhardt at Duke University.
