My research focuses on the intersection of hydrology and sediment biogeochemistry. I apply my background in engineering, along with the use of various high-tech tools (such as electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction and flow-imaging particle size analysis) to explore the biogeochemical cycles of iron, phosphorus, manganese, nitrogen and carbon, and their effects on water quality and aquatic ecology.

I am currently completing a Ph.D. at Duke University, working in the Duke Wetland Center with Curtis J. Richardson. My CV can be found here, and my Research Statement here.

When not in the lab, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities around Durham including canoeing, backpacking, fishing, and mushroom hunting.
