Sonya is a professor at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

As a microbial oceanographer, Sonya leverages molecular tools to study aquatic microbes and their role in shaping ecosystem structure, function, and biogeochemistry. She was part of a team of scientists that sequenced the first harmful algal genome sequence from a species that causes the so-called “brown tides” in Long Island Sound.
