I am an ecosystem ecologist with a long-held curiosity of how the biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) components of ecosystems interact to drive element cycling. I am particularly interested in understanding how such interactions will affect critical ecosystem processes in the wake of global environmental changes. My research spans multiple systems (forests, grasslands, and agricultural systems) and scales (lab incubations to global data syntheses), allowing me to consider these questions through various lenses. Visit my research page to learn more about my specific research projects. Contact me with any thoughts or questions – I love the collaborative nature of science!
