Interested in joining the lab?
I welcome inquiries from motivated students interested in how regional and global environmental changes influence carbon and nutrient cycling in ecosystems. I strongly encourage you to read through a few recent lab publications. If you’re interested in the “big-picture” ideas described in the first few paragraphs of each paper’s Introduction, our lab is likely to be a good fit for you. Our lab is a collaborative, highly interactive and dynamic group, with broad interests in community/ecosystem ecology, and soil biogeochemistry. Incoming Ph.D. students are encouraged to develop their own research projects. Although not a prerequisite, prospective students with interests in fieldwork and familiarity with soils or plant tissue research are encouraged to apply.
