I'm a Postdoctoral Investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution interested in understanding the complex dynamics between marine micoorganisms and global biogeochemical cycles.
I study how the availability of different chemical elements influences the geographic distribution and evolution of microbial communities, and conversely, how marine microorganisms biochemically transform compounds thereby influencing their global cycling. Most of my work has focused on the toxin Arsenic, as well as the nutrients Phosphorus and Nitrogen.
I utilize multiple techniques to study these broad interactions between microbes and the marine environment, including genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics, and data science. Please see the Projects section below for more information about some of my research and data projects.
