My research program focuses broadly on microbe:mineral interactions and the geological and ecological implications of these interactions in subsurface environments. My program currently has three separate but interrelated thrusts—microbial attachment to mineral surfaces; nutrient-driven microbial silicate weathering, and low temperature-dolomite precipitation.


I teach introductory geology, geomicrobiology, ethics and a range of specialty courses in at the intersection of energy and environment.
