Lab Overview

The Fox Biogeochemistry Laboratory studies trace element and sediment biogeochemistry. We are interested in actionable science used to inform managers and to improve outcomes of environmental engineering projects, including development of innovative new technologies and environmental restoration. The underlying theme among our diverse projects is the expanding temporal and spatial extent of hypoxia, driven by changes to the eutrophic state of coastal systems.
