I am researching microbial community composition of freshwater systems during turnover and ice cover events. Specifically, I am interested in how bacterial communities respond to changes in winter ice and snow cover. I am also studying the role of microbes in the decomposition of alternative road deicers. When I’m not in the lab or in field, you can find me throwing frisbees, sailing, bouldering, or rolling polyhedral dice.
