Research focus: how hydrology, hydraulics, and geomorphology influence ecological health and water quality in stream, river, and wetland systems. Applied goal is to advance process-based knowledge to allow better informed ecological restoration design, preservation of aquatic ecosystems, pollutant attenuation by natural processes, and watershed planning.
