I am interested in how oceanographic redox gradients impact and are influenced by microbial ecology, diversity, and metabolisms. My dissertation research focuses on describing the microbial influence on the methane cycle in marine oxygen minimum zones (OMZs). This research combines functional gene surveys (PCR and qPCR), metagenomics, metatranscriptomics, single cell whole-genome analysis, environmental chemical measurements, and isotopic rate analysis. I am also interested in optimizing sample collection techniques and meta-omic pipeline developement. I also work on a variety of other meta-omic based research in a variety of oceanic biogeochemical cycles, including terminal oxidases, anaerobic ammonium oxidation, and particle associated microbial metabolism.
