Ecohydrology and dendrochronology

I am interested in the movement of water and nutrients through forest canopies, how these pathways are altered by different forest structures and species compositions, and how we may use methods from synoptic climatology to classify storm events and forest response. I am also interested in using dendrochronology to better understand inter-specific growth rates and carbon storage capacities of temperate Mid-Atlantic forests and how detailed climate records can aid in tree ring interpretation. In addition to CZO funding, my research has been supported by an NSF DDRI grant from the Geography and Spacial Sciences Program (BCS-1233592) and the University of Delaware Department of Geography's Mather Graduate Fellows Research grant.
