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 also have active projects related to my doctoral work on the microbial ecology of sea ice and other psychrophile habitats. Serious requests for collaboration and discussion are welcome!
