Personal Statement

I am a benthic ecologist/biogeochemist. I am particularly interested in deep-sea habitats (>200 m water depth). My primary research focus is food web ecology and organic matter biogeochemistry. My main research emphasis is on how organic matter quality and quantity structures benthic communities/food webs and in turn how these communities process and alter organic matter.
