Research Interests

The overall objective of my research is to evaluate the fate and occurrence of chlorate (ClO3−). I will be studying the isotopic composition of chlorate to understand potential chlorate sources and the impact that abiotic and biotic processes have on chlorate and its isotopic signature. Another component to my research is evaluating the use of chlorate as an alternative solution for remediation of the salt marshes by introducing chlorate as both an alternate electron acceptor, as well as atomic oxygen source, allowing for remediation of the Louisianan salt marshes impacted by the BP Horizon oil spill.
