I classify myself as an Ecosystem Scientist, with a strong background in both biogeochemistry and ecology. I am most interested in the fish related components of marine ecosystems and use a wide variety of tools to conduct my research (e.g. stable/radio isotopes, telemetry, field work). To date my research has addressed the source of carbon in fish otoliths, the incorporation of oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill into Gulf coast food webs, ecosystem subsidies, and the impact of nutrient pollution on fish production. I received my Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography in 2011 from Florida State University. Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA where I spend my summers at the Plum Island Long Term Ecosystem Research site thigh deep in marsh mud capturing fish. You can find my Curriculum vitae, publications, and some pictures of my field antics on this site. If you have any questions or would like additional information feel free to contact me.
