Science Stuff

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” 
– Dr. Seuss

I do science. I'm fascinated with questions about the environment, and understanding how nature works. As an environmental geochemist, I study how rocks and water (and sometimes bacteria) react in nature, and also react with manmade things, that end up changing what's in the air and water. Through my work at the Department of Energy, I'm researching how natural systems change in response to shale gas development, and also am involved with some projects in geothermal energy and preventing greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere.
