Biographical Sketch

I am an Associate Professor at the UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory. My interests reside within the field of coastal marine ecology, with an emphasis on the processes of eutrophication, nutrient cycling, dissolved oxygen dynamics, and coastal acidification. My group is especially interested in the interactions between biological, chemical, and physical processes in coastal ecosystems. We use a combination of experimental efforts, historical data analysis, and coupled biogeochemical-hydrodynamic modeling studies to examine these aspects of estuarine and coastal aquatic science, and we have a particular interest in linking biogeochemical models to models of organismal processes, such as sav, oysters, and benthic invertebrates.
