Research Description

My research focuses on applications in isotope geochemistry. Specific focus areas include: 1. Nutrient fluxes in meltwater within the cryosphere, including permafrost and glacial melt. I aim to identify nutrient fluxes and their implications for the vegetation, landscape, and water quality of a given system using stable and radiogenic isotope geochemistry principles. 2. Investigating the geochemical and physical characteristics of groundwater with elevated radionuclide concentrations (Uranium, radon, etc).
