Research Fellow

Department of Environmental Health

An important aspect of Public Health is to understand the chemical and biological processes that regulate the fate of contaminants we release into the environment.

My Niche

I joined Dr. Elsie Sunderland‘s group in 2012. I combine fieldwork, laboratory analyses and experiments, and geochemical modeling to study biogeochemical processes affecting the transport and fate of Mercury in aquatic ecosystems.

When I am not working, I like to spend time with my family: husband and 2 children (6 and 3), workout, read sci-fi and fantasy novels.


Oh, and I live in Pittsburgh, PA!
