Research Interests

I am interested in how water and elemental (primarily carbon and nutrient) cycles are linked across landscapes and how human activities and global climate change alter these cycles and their interactions. My research focuses on a range of freshwater ecosystems - streams and rivers, floodplains, and wetlands using a variety of field and simulation modeling approaches. Please visit my lab website for more information about current research projects.
