My research group is interested in understanding the processes regulating water, nutrient, and contaminant fluxes in watersheds. In particular, we are interested in understanding how land use and climate change affect the movement of water, nutrients and contaminants in watersheds, so better environmental policy and management strategies can be developed. Although my research is science oriented and solidly grounded in the fields of hydrology and biogeochemistry, I believe that an interdisciplinary approach linking hydrology and biogeochemistry with environmental policy, environmental engineering, geology, geography and social sciences is critical for all to develop a solid understanding of human-environment interactions in complex systems.
