Jade looking busy

I am interested in biogeochemical cycling of polar environments, particularly understanding how subglacial weathering processes impact the wider ecosystem. I have previously worked on improving our understanding glacial silicon cycling and the implications of subglacial weathering on silicon export, via isotopic analysis of subglacial, proglacial and near coastal glacial waters.  Now, I am focusing on the biogeochemistry of subglacial processes driving glacial methane export to better understand the origin, potential fluxes and implications of subglacially derived carbon released from Greenland Ice Sheet.
