After graduating from Barnard College with a major in environmental science and a minor in chemistry, Audrey taught science in New York City public schools.  She now works with the Porder Lab to study the biogeochemistry of tropical soils in the context of land-use changes.  She is interested in the role of symbiotic relationships and microbe-mineral interactions in mobilizing nutrients needed for plant growth.  Audrey’s previous research includes comparing the soil microbial communities of Malaysian rainforests and oil palm plantations, as well as exploring the potential of New York City green roofs to serve as corridors for soil microbial diversity.
