Personal History

I grew up in seacoast New Hampshire, where I spent every season outside. This childhood outdoors made me intensely curious about the processes occuring in ecosystems. It also made me committed to protecting the environment. I found a way to combine these passions in researching global change effects on soil biogeochemistry. My love of science, and its power to change the world for the better, fuels my passions for teaching, mentoring, and outreach.
