I am a soil biogeochemist interested in the intersection of soil, water, and agriculture. I have a particular interest in nitrogen cycling and how different agricultural systems and practices influence that cycling. I have started my doctoral work evaluating soil chamber gas emissions in water level managed agricultural fields on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I hope to help develop new measurement techniques and contribute to the understanding of managed landscapes.
I began my PhD with Dr. Eric Davidson at the Appalachian Laboratory in August 2015. Prior to that I did my M.S in Geosciences at Pennsylvania State University.
