Catchment Biogeochemistry


Early-stage research scientist (PhD in Earth Sciences, 2017) with expertise in developing and applying biogeochemical models to study the cycles of C, N and P within catchments and lakes, as well as environmental and socio-economic models of micro- and macroplastic transport and fate across catchments. Key interests in greenhouse gases and organic matter degradation pathways with a focus on methane and carbon isotope cycling. Expertise in catchment and lake model development and web-based interactive interfaces (e.g., Proficient skills with statistical, data handling, visualization, and modelling tools: MATLAB, Python, QGIS, Adobe Illustrator. Experience in fundamental research, knowledge building, co-development/collaborative projects with tight stakeholder interactions.
