Biography

I am ecosystem scientist who works at the interface of ecology, earth system science and land use planning studying the processes shaping watersheds and their responses to anthropogenic changes. From this foundation, I tackle the challenges and complexities of sustainability and global change science. My research interests include 1) examining the impacts of human activities such as nitrogen (N) deposition, climate change, and land use changes on carbon and nitrogen cycling and loss pathways, 2) determining the consequences of human modifications of hydrology for river- riparian and urban ecosystems, and 3) exploring the interactive controls of vegetation change, management practices such as restoration, and fire on ecosystem and geomorphic processes.
