Personal profile

Research interests

I am a researcher investigating carbon cycling and transport in arctic environments using advanced and novel organic geochemistry and microbiology. Specifically, I address

  • Microbial methane dynamics in permafrost, including characterization of methanogenic and methanotrophic processes

  • Reconstruction of recent and fossil microbial communities by coupling lipid biomarker analysis and genetic informationTracking the fate of soil organic matter that is transported from permafrost deposits onto the shelf and into the Arctic Ocean.

  • Tracking the fate of soil organic matter that is transported from permafrost deposits onto the shelf and into the Arctic Ocean.
