Areas of research focus

  • Microbial ecology and diversity
  • Biomineralization
  • Benthic ecology
  • Submarine hydrothermal systems

The primary focus of my research is the biogeochemistry and ecology of submarine hydrothermal systems. My research on deep-sea vents encompasses the fields of microbial ecology, biomineralization and benthic ecology. Other research areas include the microbial ecology of deep-sea sediments, and the seasonal dynamics of arctic sea-ice microbial communities.
