I am an interdisciplinary earth scientist interested in biogeochemical cycling in cold regions. I use a wide range of field and analytical methods to investigate cold-regions aeolian processes and geomorphology, coupled biogeochemical cycles, biological soil crusts, and mineral weathering. My research addresses the question of how the emission and deposition of atmospheric dust alters highly sensitive polar and alpine ecosystems. Here in Ohio, my research investigates the changing patterns of atmospheric nutrient deposition and the consequences for local ecosystems.
I am always looking for motivated undergraduates to join the lab group! We work collaboratively on projects in the lab and in the field and have a lot of fun along the way. There are many ways to get involved, from joining our weekly lab group meetings, to getting credit for an independent research project, to joining the summer research team. If you're interested, please reach out to me to learn about available opportunities!
