Research Summary: I am interested in the molecular scale interactions that can occur between metals and bacteria to better understand the biogeochemical cycling of metals in the environment. I use advanced techniques including high energy resolution XANES spectroscopy to link metal coordination environments in bacteria with bioavailability. In addition, I work on understanding the environmental impacts of organo-lead halide perovskite photovoltaic devices.
