• Permafrost thaw • Biogeochemistry • Methane emissions
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology

Advisor: Merritt Turetsky

Research interests include the controls on permafrost carbon vulnerability post-thaw (permafrost history, aggrading processes, ice content, residence time) and how that will improve estimates of carbon emissions under future climate warming scenarios. Impacts of fire on permafrost and drone operations are also interests.
