Hi my name is Lena Capece (pronouns: she, her, hers). I study biogeochemical cycling (biotic and abiotic mechanisms) in coastal and aquatic environments.
Specifically, I investigate the cycling of nutrients and the pathways of organic matter decay. I like learning about these processes in modern environments in order to help elucidate how these processes functioned in the past.
I will be pursuing my PhD in Earth Science at the University of California, Santa Barbara starting Fall 2019.
You can typically find me outside running, climbing or relaxing.
