My research interests are soil and water biogeochemistry, erosion dynamics, and soil ecology. As a researcher, I am especially interested in soils and how they moderate nutrient cycling. For my Master's thesis I identified sources of collected sediment using stable isotopes in order to understand carbon dynamics in two minimally disturbed watersheds of the Southern Sierra CZO.
