My research bridges the gulf between understanding what microbes do at the centimeter scale and the importance of those processes at the ecosystem scale.  Currently, I study how climate change or ecosystem restoration will affect biogeochemical time lags.  Time lags of focus include the transport of nitrogen into streams,  the influence of sulfate introduced to lakes via aluminum sulfate additions, and the creation of GHGs from soils.
