My research interests are centered in the field of biogeochemistry, a multidisciplinary approach focused on understanding the chemical composition of the Earth’s biosphere. Within this broad area, my research examines the sources, sinks and cycling of organic matter. More specifically, I am interested in the persistence of human‐derived compounds in the marine environment (e.g. petroleum) and the cycling of recalcitrant organic compounds between the atmosphere, terrestrial and marine biospheres. My work seeks to examine how the chemical structure, physical associations and bioavailability of specific organic compounds determines their cycling and eventual fate.
