I’m a postdoctoral fellow in the Biology and Paleoenvironment Division of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and a research scientist at the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science.  My research focuses on marine microbial ecology, with a particular emphasis on the interactions between bacteria and phytoplankton.  I use genome and environmental sequencing, cell sorting, and a variety of other techniques to address the role of bacteria in the initiation, maintenance, and collapse of phytoplankton blooms.

I’ll be starting an assistant professorship in the Integrative Oceanography Division at Scripps Institute of Oceanography in January of 2017.  I’m looking for a talented and highly motivated doctoral student with an interest in marine microbial ecology to start in the fall of 2017.  Interested students should apply to the SIO Ocean Biosciences Program this fall, and should contact me first to discuss possible projects.
