Research interests: Microbial ecology, nitrogen cycling
Our lab studies bacteria and archaea involved in nitrogen cycling using molecular and stable isotope tools. I am interested in all aspects of how nitrogen is transported to and recycled within the SBC LTER ecosystem, and how those processes may change as a function of changing oxygen concentrations along the coast. We are particularly interested in the dynamics of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide.
