I am interested in better understanding the environmental factors that regulate microbial N cycling and N2O emissions from N-disturbed ecosystems (e.g. overfertilized systems, systems impacted by N deposition) over space and time. I use N2O stable isotopomers, 15N tracers, and basic microbial tools to partition among N2O-generating processes and measure process rates of different N transformations and their corresponding N2O emissions. I would like to use my dissertation research to inform land management, N2O budgeting, and fundamental understanding of how microbial N transformations work.
