Current Research Interests: 

My research is broadly focused on both basic and applied problems in watershed management and on riparian and aquatic ecosystems. My basic research focuses on the interactions between hydrological, geomorphological, and ecological processes that create, maintain, or modify aquatic and riparian habitats, and the ways in which these processes either interact with, or are affect by, land-use practices. My applied research focuses on developing models and decision support tools that synthesize the current knowledge of aquatic and riparian systems into forms that can help inform management decisions at large spatial and temporal scales.
