Areas of Expertise

  • Aquatic biogeochemistry and microbial ecology
  • Benthic-pelagic coupling in coastal marine and lake environments
  • Ecology of sulfur oxidizing bacteria


My research aims to better quantify and predict rates and pathways of geochemical cycling in aquatic systems, integrating tools from aquatic geochemistry and microbial ecology. A main theme of my research is to better understand carbon and nutrient processing through benthic pathways in aquatic ecosystems, with a particular interest in sulfur oxidizing bacteria in aquatic sediments.
