Assistant Professor, PhD. 2006, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University; M.S. 2000, B.S. 1997, Oregon State University. My research focuses on biogeochemistry and ecosystem analysis with emphasis on nutrient cycling and limitation. Interests include: ecosystem response and feedback to atmospheric and climate variation; watershed biogeochemistry; plant-soil interactions; natural abundance isotope analysis; ecosystem modeling; global change.
