I recently co-hosted a session titled "Marine Sediments: Fluxes, Fauna, and Forecasting" alongside Tina Treude (UCLA) at this year's Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, CA. I also participated in the Ocean Data Labs workshop and presented my ongoing work examining permeable sediments surrounding giant kelp forests as a source of nutrients to the overlying water column. This was my first ever OSM, and I am already looking forward to OSM 2022 in Honolulu! (If anyone is interested in hosting a similar sediment-themed session at the next meeting, please feel free to get in touch!)
I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Biology at Duke University.
