I am a chemical oceanographer working as a post-doctoral fellow with Clare Reimers in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. Broadly, my research interests are carbon, oxygen and nutrient cycling at the sediment-water interface and at the land-sea interface.

My graduate research focused on carbon, oxygen and nutrient cycling in nearshore permeable reef sediments at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. My current research focuses on the benthic component of the seasonally observed hypoxia on the Oregon Shelf. In my research, I use a combination of novel in situ, ex situ and modeling techniques in conjunction with observatory science to characterize the role that sediments play in coastal and global biogeochemical cycles.
