Areas of Expertise and Interest:

I’m broadly interested in the interaction between microbes and the Earth. I aim to address questions of how this interaction has changed over time and space and the role microbes  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 via microbial activated reactions.
