While at EPA I oversaw a contract, run by the Oris lab at Miami University and Molly Mehling, to run an experiment on mercury cycling in aquatic food webs, partnering with Dr. David Walters. In retrospect it might have been better to run a series of small experiments focused on more specific questions, rather than one large experiment where several things are going on at once. This experience also taught me much about managing the work of contractors under federal contracts. A publication for this work is in revision
