Department of Environmental Earth System Science

I carry out research related to nutrient cycling, most notably nitrogen and phosphorus, in a range of environments and ecosystems, with a particular focus on the Hawaiian Islands. My group has looked at nutrient dynamics in the soil profile, litter, native forest ecosystems, forest, and grassland systems affected by invasive species and agricultural systems.
