Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is viewed as an information-rich set of molecular tracers which carry the chemical signature of its source and subsequent journey to its point of analysis. The overarching goal of my research is to read the molecular signatures of DOM using advanced analytical techniques to reveal its source, reactivity, and environmental fate. Upstream landscapes and rainfall-runoff processes have emerged as major controllers of…

About Nick: "My graduate research training encompassed a combination of biophysical and physiological tools used to describe how organism responds to changes in environmental conditions. For my masters research, I focused on the effects of the light microenvironment influencing the photophysiology and growth of scleractinian coral. For my dissertation research, I explored the physiological responses of Fucus vesiculosus, a basal primary producer…

Facilitation cascades arise where primary foundation species facilitate secondary (dependent) foundation species and collectively, they increase habitat complexity and quality to enhance species richness and abundance. In this seminar, I will present results from field experiments, lab experiments, correlational studies and models that indicate facilitation cascades created by spatial overlap of cordgrass and ribbed mussel foundation species are…

"Functional Characterization of Vitamin Transport and Metabolism in Microbes" (Sponsored jointly by the Department of Marine Sciences and the UGA Microbiome Seminar Series). Dr. Wright conducts research on activity-based proteomics by which proteins are captured from microbes or the environment based on their function.

Abstract: Marine biogeochemistry is orchestrated by a complex and dynamic community of microorganisms that attempt to maximize their own fecundity through a combination of competition and cooperation.  At a systems level, the community can be described as a distributed metabolic network, where different species contribute their own unique set of metabolic capabilities.  Our current project attempts to understand the governing principles that…
