I study soil and rock in deep chemical weathering profiles to understand the process of transforming rock to soil. Using mineralogy and geochemical mass balance I seek to understand how soil minerals associate with and lend to the stability and sequestration of soil carbon. I am looking at the controls and limitations to these processes based on landscape position, hillslope erosional dynamics, and hydrology at a watershed scale.
