I am an ecosystem scientist who works at the interface of ecology, earth system science, and hydrology studying the processes shaping ecosystems and their responses to anthropogenic changes. From this foundation, I tackle the challenges and complexities of sustainability and global change science. My primary research interests include 1) understanding the hydrologic and biogeochemical processes shaping watershed ecosystems, 2) studying the ways in which land use and other human-caused changes are altering these processes in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and across these traditional disciplinary boundaries, and 3) integrating social processes and other human dimensions into watershed and ecosystem management.
