Research Interests

  •  I study the cycling and transport of phosphorus in soil and sediment. I am particularly interested in the distribution of phosphorus among the various physicochemical phases, and the processes that alter the distribution in an effort to the potential bioavailability.
  • Recently, I have initiated investigations in the influence of climate variations on natural elemental cycling. In particular, I am using a natural climate gradient in southeastern Puerto Rico where all factors are constant except precipitation to study elemental fluxes using major and trace elements, stable isotopes and sediment microbiology.
