I am an aquatic biogeochemist and ecosystem ecologist currently at Duke University in the University Program in Ecology. I am co-advised by Emily Bernhardt and Dean Urban.
In June 2018, I will start as a post-doctoral research associate at the University of Montana Flathead Lake Biological Station (FLBS). I will be working with Bob Hall as part of the StreamPulse Project to model both hydrologic controls on freshwater metabolism and the transport and transformation of carbon within rivers.
As an environmental scientist, I strive to perform use-inspired basic research which will improve fundamental understanding in the field of aquatic biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology while providing managers with the information they need to make evidence-based decisions.
As an environmental educator, I seek to inspire the next generation of thoughtful stewards of the earth through teaching critical analysis, data interpretation, and communication skills. You can read more about my teaching philosophy and experience here.
