Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences
I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. In 2014 I graduated with a B.S. in Geology from the Macaulay Honors College at the City College of New York. During my undergraduate studies my research was focused on virus interactions with soils in aqueous environments. My undergraduate research stimulated my interest in processes taking place in freshwater environments. I am interested in the role of iron in the oxidation of dissolved organic matter to CO2 Arctic soils and freshwater sediments.
