Associate Professor

Watershed Management and Ecohydrology


We study the microbial imprint on ecosystem processes and atmospheric chemistry. We constrain genetic traits for trace gas metabolism, develop new tools to measure soil gas, and use experimental ecosystems to capture the outcomes of environmental forcings on ecosystems.
