I am interested in using isotope signatures, especially tools like clumped isotopes, to resolve the provenance of methane gases. My goal is to combine lab incubation and modeling to understand the mechanism of clumped isotope fractionation in methanogenesis and methane oxidation. My research are mainly in the field of biogeochemistry, stable isotope and clumped isotopes.
