My research interests include using molecular and metagenomic sequencing techniques to assess the impact of disturbance events (contamination, climate change, etc.) on microbial community structure and function.
Research and Activities
My current research activities are twofold: 1) assessing sources and drivers of fecal contamination in high priority estuaries along the Carolina coast and 2) assisting in the development and implementation of technology to rapidly identify viruses in wastewaters for the current and future pandemic events.
