I am a marine microbial ecologist studying the biogeography of the deep sea, and the impact of change on marine and estuarine communities. My work spans continental margin sediments, hydrocarbons and chemical dispersants impacts on artificial reefs (shipwrecks) in the Gulf of Mexico, marine methane seeps, and oxygen minimum zones. I am an amateur poet, and my muse is the ocean.

The Nature Portfolio Microbiology Community provides a forum for the sharing and discussion of ideas and opinions about microbiology. Through posts, discussion, image and video content, the community space can be used by members to communicate with each other, and with editors, about topics ranging from the science itself through to policy, society and day to day life. It is also a place to learn more about the activities of Nature Microbiology's editors and the policies and practices of the journal.
