Research interests

Geochemistry and Biogeochemistry

About

My training in chemical kinetics, thermodynamics, geochemistry, and biogeochemistry has allowed me to pursue a wide range of interdisciplinary research projects. My research objectives are broadly divided into two categories: (1) To investigate the biogeochemical evolution of a variety of elements and compounds in the environment, especially with regards to how they influence or are cycled through global processes and how they may affect human health. (2) To examine the abiotic genesis of elemental hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), and other organic species in a variety of geologic environments (i.e., hydrothermal and volcanic systems) in order to assess key steps potentially leading to: i) the discovery of new energy resources and ii) the evaluation and the formation of early Earth’s “prebiotic soup” through laboratory studies, chemical modeling, and field data.
