I am a research scientist at UC Berkeley and I study the biogeochemistry of carbon cycling in aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. I am particularly interested in understanding methane emissions from wetlands, lakes, and reservoirs, including their drivers and contributions to atmospheric methane. I use a range of tools including eddy covariance, data synthesis, modeling, and sensor design/construction/deployment.
I am also the Deputy Director of the FLUXNET Community Council, an international group of scientists dedicated to supporting the FLUXNET community. As Deputy Director I guide the efforts to advance education, data development, and community building. This exciting work allows me to work with scientists from all over the world, and I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to this dynamic and engaging research community.
Outside of work you can find me spending time with family, running, cooking, and enjoying California's beautiful landscapes.
