Research Interests:

My research interests are at the intersection of watershed hydrology, ecology, biogeochemistry, water and land management, and fluvial geomorphology using field measurements, remote sensing, laboratory, and modeling techniques. I am particularly passionate about topics such as surface-subsurface exchanges, terrestrial-aquatic linkages, climate change and other anthropogenic interactions, statistical and deterministic modeling, and the importance of spatial and temporal scale for watershed processes.
