Kristen Buck is an Assistant Professor in the College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida. Her primary research interests are focused on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals and nutrients in the marine environment. In particular, research in the Buck lab examine the predominant chemical forms (or speciation) of trace metals in seawater, implications of this speciation for metal bioavailability, and feedbacks between natural biological communities and seawater chemistry.
