Research overview

My research searches for solutions to protect drinking water, food production, and carbon sequestration from environmental change. My most active projects involve understanding how land use and climate warming alter the movement of organic matter from land into water and thus the health of freshwaters. I also study how species evolve in response to short- and long-term environmental change.
