Current projects  

1)      Understanding the long-term controls on biogeochemical cycles in the Luquillo Experimental Forest in Puerto Rico and the impact of people on water quality in urban areas of Puerto Rico (NSF LTER).

2)      Understanding impacts of climate variability on aquatic ecosystem services under different land management using a distributed sensor network in New Hampshire (NSF EPSCoR).

3)      How we can scale patch- and reach-scale process measurements and consumer manipulation experiments to predict ecosystem characteristics of stream networks in Puerto Rico, and how do patterns of scaling compare across biomes (NSF Biology).
