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, microbial influences on mineral dissolution and geochemical cycling, heavy metal adsorption and speciation, and microbial metabolism efficiency
