My research focuses on the interactions between climate and ecosystem composition and function. By combining biological, chemical, and physical observations with ecosystem models, I aim to elucidate the underlying mechanisms responsible for biogeochemical cycling in microbial ecosystems, and to identify climate-ecosystem feedback loops. An overarching theme of my research is the impact of fine-scale processes on large-scale dynamics and how changes at the fine-scale may impact global carbon cycling.
