Research Interests

  • Biogeochemisty and cycling of phosphorus (organic and inorganic) and associated bioactive elements (C, N, S) in marine, lacustrine, and riverine systems.
  • Nutrient limitation of biological productivity in the ocean.
  • Sediment diagenesis: organic matter reactivity and mineral authigenesis.
  • Geochemistry of redox sensitive elements: the effect of redox chemistry on element cycling.
  • Use of geochemistry of modern environments to interpret the sedimentary record.
