I have a Ph.D. in Geomicrobiology with 10 years of experience working in a laboratory setting, designing and executing experiments that quantify the thermodynamics of geochemical and biogeochemical processes occurring in microbe-water-rock systems, including microbe-metal surface adsorption and biogeochemical sulfur and iron cycling. Demonstrated record teaching laboratory techniques, managing laboratory personnel, and directing multifaceted projects.

My research interests include:

  • Geomicrobiology
  • Low-temperature aqueous geochemistry
  • Microbially mediated mineral dissolution
  • Biogeochemical cycling
  • Heavy metal adsorption and speciation
  • Metabolic efficiency
