    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsGeneral research interests: How environmental chemistry influences soil and sediment microbial community dynamics and carbon cycling. Microbial activity plays a large role in carbon storage, greenhouse gas release, and the transport of toxic metals. However, microbial processes differ vastly depending on local environmental conditions. I study how the availability of substrates microbes use to generate energy affects microbial ecology and the processes and rates controlling carbon cycling.
