My research interest is investigating the effects of ocean acidification on the biogeochemical cycling of carbon in the ocean and the resulting implications for both marine ecosystems and atmospheric CO2 levels. My work in the Carlson laboratory focuses on the short-term and long-term impacts of increasing pCO2 on the use of dissolved organic carbon by natural bacterioplankton communities. With this research focus, my graduate work will help to better constrain surface carbon budgets and enable predictions of the degree to which the global oceans will continue to be a sink for anthropogenic-derived CO2.
