I study the bottom-up control of dissolved organic matter (DOM) on pelagic bacterial community composition and activity. My work looks at how bacteria grow on DOM produced by phytoplankton blooms, both in the Santa Barbara Channel and in laboratory experiments, and at how sunlight-driven chemical alterations affect bacterial usage of DOM.
