Research overview

I am an Associate Professor in Water, Soil and Carbon Interactions, with expertise in marine benthic biogeochemistry, organic geochemistry, and stable isotope tracing. My research is broadly concerned with studying the biogeochemical processes occurring in marine sediments, with an emphasis on the cycling and burial of organic carbon and nitrogen, and the role played by benthic fauna in shaping their own geochemical environment. Work in low oxygen environments such as the Baltic Sea and the Arabian Sea has led to a particular interest in de-convolving the often co-varying factors of sediment organic matter content, dissolved oxygen concentration and benthic faunal community...
