I am a freshwater ecologist broadly interested in stream biogeochemical processes. Specifically, I study the fate of terrestrially-derived dissolved organic matter in streams. I apply a variety of optically-based and analytical-based techniques (e.g. UV/Vis absorbance, pyrolysis Gas chromatography mass spectroscopy) to understand how the composition of dissolved organic matter changes with source and across the landscape. I also use techniques such as gas chromatography to quantify fluxes of C and N and molecular techniques (high-throughput DNA sequencing) to describe changes in the composition of the microbial community with different inputs of dissolved organic matter.
