To understand changes in the carbon cycle on both
human and geological timescales, we need to understand how carbon, sulfur, oxygen, nutrients, and metals interact in the environment.
In NOISE Lab at UCSB, we develop and use a variety of cutting-edge analytical tools to study these interactions at the interface between geobiology and geochemistry.
How does sulfur biogeochemistry affect organic matter cycling?
