About me

I have just graduated with a Ph.D. from ACES. Through my studies, I have aimed to advance our understanding of marine mercury biogeochemistry. My thesis work focused on the degradation pathways of dimethylmercury, a volatile organomercury compound found in ocean water with a poorly understood impact on Hg bioaccumulation. In my upcoming projects and future employments, I will aim to continue studying the Hg cycle, focusing on methylated Hg and marine environments.
