Current Research Interests
My research addresses the impacts of changing precipitation patterns on nitrous oxide emissions (N2O) from agricultural soils in the Upper Midwest. This work takes place in a greenhouse facility on the St. Paul campus and utilizes large soil filled plant growth chambers to mimic growing conditions representative of the Upper Midwest and to monitor how soil N2O emissions respond to changes in rainfall. I have a strong interest in global scale research questions and the intersection of science and society. I hail from New England. My favorite hobbies include backcountry skiing, trail running, and participating in second hand and circular economies.
