RESEARCH

I study dissolved gasses in the ocean using Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometry. We explore biological and physical processes using an Underwater Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometer (UMS) by measuring in-situ gas concentrations. We are currently using this technique for 2 projects–1) Using the UMS to help determine net community production in the North Atlantic Gyre 2) Examining deep water formation and ice formation gas solubilities in the Southern Ocean.
