Postdoctoral Research Associate
Brice joined the lab in 2018 after completing his PhD degree at Michigan Technological University. Brice's research focuses on optical characterization of DOM cycling, developing algorithms for multi- and hyperspectral ocean colors sensors and monitoring aquatic biogeochemical variability utilizing autonomous platforms. He enjoys combining large datasets to address complex research questions. He has experience working across the "salty divide", from wetlands, rivers and the Great Lakes to estuaries and the coastal ocean. He is currently working on projects in the Long Island Sound, coastal Arctic and Great Lakes watersheds.
