RESEARCH FOCUS

  • Understand what controls stream and wetland ecosystem structure and function
  • Stream and wetland restoration ecology
  • Ecological theory and restoration ecology
  • Effect of land use, hydrology, and geomorphology on aquatic ecosystem dynamics
  • Evaluating wetland and stream ecosystem functions
  • Understanding the relationship between wetland inundation, hydrologic connectivity, and carbon fluxes.
  • Quantifying the effects of stream restoration on nitrogen removal in Chesapeake Bay tributaries
  • Evaluating hydrologic and stream community responses to novel forms of stream restoration called regenerative storm water conveyance systems
