I am an ecohydrologist with a B.A. and an M.S. in ecology and a Ph.D. in hydrogeology. My research is focused on the nexus of three concepts: hydrological connectivity, geological controls on physical and chemical hydrology, and hydrological controls on ecosystem structure and function. Specifically, my research is focused on:
- local- and landscape-scale hydrological connectivity,
- the roles that hydrological processes play in governing ecosystem structure and function, and
- the roles that science plays in informing law and policy.
I pursue these efforts in a variety of surface-water and shallow-groundwater environments, including depressional wetlands, headwater streams and mainstem rivers, and mangroves and lagoons.
