Professional Summary

I am interested in the microbial ecology of high pH serpentinizing systems and the interplay between geochemistry and microbial metabolism. In particular I am currently studying the role of sulfur in the Ney Springs serpentinizing system and how the extreme conditions of this environment may affect the bioavailability of different sulfur species and how they are utilzed by microorganisms as an energy source.
