My research seeks to enhance our understanding of the interface between forest hydrological processes and ecosystem functioning, as this is critical to the advancement of natural resource & watershed management. I primarily perform field-based investigations of hydrological processes and their relationships to forest ecology and biogeochemistry, including instrumentation & methods development.
