Current Research

My research covers a wide range of topics, but it centers on one dominant theme: Water Environment. Human activities have caused changes in both quantity and quality of freshwater on Earth. At the most basic level, I study interactions between hydrological and biogeochemical systems, with particular emphasis on how these dynamics produce spatial and temporal patterns. I began investigating hydrological and biogeochemical processes at a soil-water interface. During the past decade, my research has spanned spatial scales from that interface to a large river basin, but I gravitate towards what it may be called a “watershed” scale. My research is conducted through both experimental and numerical modeling. Normally, I pursue my work using some combination of field measurements, hydrologic and water quality modeling, and spatial techniques.
