I am an environmental chemist that is fascinated by how chemistry and biology interact in terrestrial ecosystems. There are millions of microorganisms in the soils beneath our feet. They get nutrients from soils, and many can form biominerals and mediate other chemical reactions that impact how pollutants move in the environment and pollutant transfer the food chain. Plants, too, interact with soils around their roots and form partnerships with soil microbes, influencing nutrient and contaminant cycles. I am particularly interested in building our understanding of how organisms facilitate chemical processes in human-impacted soils, and how we can develop innovative ways to mitigate soil pollution to meet our growing global demand for healthy soils.
