"I study marsh biogeochemistry, specifically what happens to dissolved organic matter (DOM)—microscopic organic compounds—once it gets into marsh soils. Ultimately my goal is to create a more accurate model to predict how compounds in the sediment move and change throughout the system. This research has major implications for sea-level rise and salt intrusion into the marshes."
