Research interests: Soil ecology, microbial controls of ecosystem processes, terrestrial biogeochemistry
My research focuses on understanding nutrient dynamics in soil, including analyzing processes that regulate nutrient release and movement into ground and surface waters. Within the SBCLTER, I work with the watershed team to investigate patterns and mechanisms affecting nutrient transport to the coastal ocean and the processing and release of kelp-derived nitrogen in sediments of intertidal beaches.
