Thank you for visiting the watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry research group at Colorado State University.

I am motivated by the study of watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry, and my research focuses on the movement of water, elements, and energy through landscapes. I explore how the transport of water and elements across landscapes and through river networks influences water quantity and quality (composition) across space and time. This includes how the physical template directs or organizes ecological processes and patterns at watershed to regional scales. I am interested in feedbacks between climate variability, hydrological and biogeochemical dynamics, and environmental change (including human accelerated land-use/land cover LULC and climate change) and how these manifest as patterns we observe. A goal of my research is to improve fundamental understanding in watershed science and provide enhanced land and natural resource management decision-making tools.
