This page is a work in progress.....stay tuned!
Nitrogen Cycling in Coastal Ecosystems:
How does climate change alter benthic-pelagic coupling? What are the rates & controls of N fixation in estuaries? in aquatic systems? What's the role of hypoxia and pH in shifting benthic metabolism? What's the role of permeable sediments in removing nitrogen?
New Lab Directions:
Aquaculture and Vibrio: Is macroalgae a refuge for pathogenic Vibrio species? Heterosigma: do sediments supply nitric oxide to toxic phytoplankton? Coastal Carbon: developing a new share model and a novel suite of sensors.
