    Research Interests
    My research interests are in the application of non-traditional stable isotopes to modern processes such as biogeochemical cycling, pollutant transport, and medical geology. Specifically, I have studied the photochemical cycling of mercury in the Arctic, the emission, transport, and deposition of toxic metals, mercury biogeochemical cycling and human exposure to mercury and methylmercury. All of these projects involve field work and the development of novel techniques to analyze the isotopic composition of complex environmental samples. I am also interested in environmental sustainability and interdisciplinary approaches to tackling wicked problems in sustainability.
