- Constraining the biogeochemical cycles of marine dissolved and particulate organic matter (DOM, POM) and sediments via spatiotemporal and compositional distributions of radiocarbon.
- Examining photochemical and thermochemical transformations of natural organic matter as biogeochemical sinks.
- Obtaining and interpreting coarse isotopic spectra of complex organic mixtures (e.g., DOM) through isotopic reaction analyses and continuous flow accelerator mass spectrometry.
- Developing novel isotopic and geochemical methods with improved accuracies, precisions, detection limits, resolutions, and utility.
