Research Interests

  • Carbonate chemistry and air-sea CO2 exchange
  • Ocean acidification
  • Ocean CO2 removal (CDR)
  • Blue carbon; Lateral carbon export from coastal wetlands
  • Sensor technology developments (pH, pCO2/fCO2, total dissolved inorganic carbon, and total alkalinity; O2; nutrients; metals and other chemical species)
  • Coastal carbon cycle and ocean carbon biogeochemistry

Opportunities in my lab

You are welcome to contact me to discuss the opportunities in my lab, which may include observational studies on the marine carbon cycle, carbonate chemistry, ocean acidification, and coastal blue carbon systems; technology development of in situ carbon and chemical sensors; and biogeochemical modeling of the carbonate system. You may have the opportunities to participate in field expedition on research cruises or sampling trips along the coastline, as well as to conduct chemical lab analysis, synthesize data from field measurements, and develop new sensor technologies.
