Research interests: My research focuses on understanding the structure, diversity and function of microbial communities in the low oxygen regions of the Subarctic Pacific Ocean. I am specifically interested in describing the metabolic capacities of these communities, how this capacity varies from the coast to the open ocean, from surface to depth and seasonally, as well as how this metabolism impacts the cycling of climatologically active gases such as methane, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and dimethylsulfide. The results of this research could have major implications for global climate modeling and for coastal resource management decisions in Canada and other coastal regions of the world.
