Research in my lab falls under the general heading of terrestrial biogeochemistry, with a particular emphasis on processes that regulate nutrient availability in agricultural and other disturbed ecosystems. Currently my group's research centers on (1) biogenic trace gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems as a function of land use and management, (2) the spatial heterogeneity of nutrient availability in native and managed landscapes, and (3) process-level controls on nitrogen availability.
Underlying all work in my lab is the general aim of understanding the processes that regulate biogeochemical cycles at scales ranging from the microbial to the global.
