Research Interests
My research focuses on the disentangling of complex biogeochemical processes (primarily within the N cycle, but also C, H and S) over a range scales and aquatic environments, in order to improve our predictive capabilities in the face of widespread global change.  I am particularly interested in how biogeochemical processes are coupled in nature and how can we use stable isotopes and genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic information to unravel and quantify these relationships.

Analytical Techniques Employed
Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry, Gas Chromatography, Ion Chromatography, Laser Absorption Spectroscopy, In Situ Instrumentation, Quantitative Molecular Microbiology
