I’m a postdoctoral fellow in the Biology and Paleo Environment Division of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and a research scientist at the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science. My research is focused on the interactions between bacteria and phytoplankton, with a particular emphases on epibiotic bacteria (bacteria attached to phytoplankton cells) and their role 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!
I’m in the process of migrating my UW site to a new, independent server. Please be patient while I work out the kinks!
