Research Interests

Ocean acidification and marine biomineralization – laboratory culturing studies and field studies  of OA impacts on corals, shellfish, and benthic foraminifera.

Benthic geochemistry - pore water and solid phase studies of organic matter decomposition, calcium carbonate dissolution, and nitrogen cycling.

Ocean paleochemistry – calibration studies of benthic foraminiferal shell chemistry, and isotopic and elemental estimates of changes in ocean circulation and the oceanic carbon cycle.

Land-sea groundwater interactions - chemical and isotopic studies of groundwater discharge into estuaries and the coastal ocean.
