Postdoc researcher. I am a broadly interested biogeochemist and environmental chemist. I use stable isotopes and chemical tracer analysis to study the source, dispersion, and fate of greenhouse gases and persistent pollutants. At the moment, my research focuses on understanding the methane cycle in boreal forests, wetlands, and urban environments. Outside of work, you have a good chance of finding me dancing to swing era music, playing one of some brass instrument, or on a cross-country ski trail.
