Research Interests

My research is focused on understanding the marine carbon cycle in Baffin Bay and Nares Strait. I investigate specific biogeochemical processes that affect the cycling of inorganic carbon, such as primary production, freshwater inputs, and the advection of Pacific and Atlantic water masses through the Arctic Ocean. Another aspect of my research focuses on ocean acidification, and how quickly it has been progressing in the waters of Baffin Bay.
