I will be starting as an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern California, Fall 2013
My research focuses on the interactions between climate and ecosystem composition and function. By combining biological, chemical, and physical observations with ecosystem models, I aim to elucidate the underlying mechanisms responsible for biogeochemical cycling in microbial ecosystems, and to identify climate-ecosystem feedback loops. An overarching theme of my research is the impact of fine-scale processes on large-scale dynamics, and how changes at the fine-scale may impact global carbon cycling.
