Description of scientific projects
My overall scientific interest is to better understand the cycling of natural organic matter in the oceans and its effect on the global biogeochemical cycles of major elements (e.g., carbon, oxygen) and nutrients (e.g., nitrogen, phosphorous, silica). I am especially interested in the processes that control organic matter cycling, and its ultimate fate in the marine environment. I believe these processes play a critical role in determining the composition of the sedimentary record. Hence, understanding them is vital to accurately reconstruct past oceanographic and climatic conditions.
