I am an oceanographer and earth-system scientist interested in an interdisciplinary approach to understanding aquatic-climate connections in both my teaching and scholarship at Oberlin College. 

My research explores the physical and biological drivers of biogeochemical cycles in the Polar and Sub-polar Oceans with a focus on the use of dissolved gas tracers, remote sensing, and computational analysis. New work will investigate the role of ice in shaping carbon, oxygen and nutrient cycling in the Great Lakes.
