I am an aquatic biogeochemist with interests in nutrient cycling, stable isotopes, harmful algal blooms, and greenhouse gases. In my research, I focus on increasing fundamental understanding of biogeochemistry in aquatic systems while generating information relevant to managers and the public. More info, including opportunities for collaboration and student projects, in the research tab.
I am also committed to effective STEM teaching and mentoring. My approach to teaching centers the principles of scientific practices, cooperation, evidence-based design, and mentoring. I have developed this approach through scholarship and hands-on experience in the classroom. More info in the teaching tab and in my online teaching portfolio.
