I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences at The University of Toledo. I received my Ph.D. in Biology from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2004, and then worked as a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Colorado before coming to the University of Toledo’s Dept. of Environmental Sciences in 2006.
I study basic processes in the soil, such as decomposition and nutrient cycling, to learn how ecosystems function and how they might respond to disturbances such as climate change. Much of my research since 1996 has been in the Alaskan Arctic, an area already experiencing dramatic changes in climate.
