Fields of interest: 
I am interested in studying the impacts of natural and anthropogenic events on microbial communities in aquatic ecosystems – and eventually, the consequences of changes in microbial communities on other organisms and processes. My work at LDEO involves studying the impacts of oil and natural gas inputs on the microbial and planktonic community in the Gulf of Mexico, focusing on changes in community composition, activity, and fate of the organisms.
