Education and Public Engagement
Faculty, UW (Leg 1)
I am an assistant professor in the Marine Geology & Geophysics group at the School of Oceanography of UW specializing in marine geochemistry and hydrogeology. My research combines the development of novel seafloor instrumentation, fieldwork, laboratory analyses, and numerical modeling to document and understand the dynamic hydrogeology and chemical evolution of subduction zones, ridge flanks, and passive margins. In particular, my research focuses on the interrelationship of fluid flow and deformation and chemical fluxes along continental margins, gas hydrates and environmental change, cold seeps and hydrocarbon fluxes to the ocean and atmosphere, long-term hydrogeochemical monitoring, and sediment pore fluid biogeochemistry and diagenesis.
