My disciplinary focus is in soil science and wetland science. I am a Certified Professional Soil Scientist with research interests in vernal pool hydropedology, hydric soil characterization, and plant-soil interactions in wetland environments.
- Vernal Pool Hydropedology Study –assessing soil morphology, carbon storage, and denitrification potential in multiple vernal pools across southern New England
- Plant-Soil Interactions in Calcareous Wetlands — describing the hydrogeochemical cycles of calcareous sloping wetland systems in Berkshire County, MA, and correlating environmental variables with plant species distribution patterns across these systems.
- Massachusetts Wetland Delineation Manual – 2022 revision — updating the Hydric Soils chapter of this MADEP publication.
