Research Interests
My research investigates the geochemical imprint of microbial life on the Earth's surface environment through geological time by studying modern microbial metabolisms and the behavior of metals and minerals under varying aqueous redox regimes. A major focus of my work is understanding the impact of ferruginous conditions on regulating microbial activity and biogeochemical cycling.
