Watershed Management and Ecohydrology
I use ecological knowledge and quantitative models to improve mechanistic understanding of the uptake, storage and release of carbon from ecosystems to provide accurate predictions of the role of terrestrial ecosystems in global biogeochemical cycles
I teach a general education course called Sustainable Earth (INDIV 150C) where we consider society’s use of natural resources and the environment. I also teach an upper undergraduate and graduate course on Earth’s Changing Carbon Cycle (RNR 427/527).
