About me

My research focuses on the world's tiniest inhabitants, microbes. We are interested in understanding how microbes that  inhabit coastal systems can help clean up nutrient pollution from human derived sources, the role they play in plant success and in soil carbon storage. Most of our work takes place in coastal salt marshes, wetlands that provide a suite of critically important ecosystem services.  If you are interested in joining our lab, please get in touch with me using the contact information below!
