My current research projects are driven by the following research questions:


How may concentration-discharge relationships and long-term trends of solute concentrations be altered by hydrological extremes in a suburbanizing watershed?


How does DOM composition vary over space and time in a river network?


Does the pulse of snowmelt (NO3 and FDOM) vary across a N gradient using high frequency sensors?
