Research in our lab focuses on aquatic biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology, with an emphasis on how human and physical drivers shape carbon and nitrogen biogeochemistry as well as ecosystem metabolism. Much of this work is done at the interface between ecology, geomorphology, and hydrology, and considers streams, lakes, and wetlands. Among the diverse projects going on in our group, three themes can be recognized: (1) understanding long-term change in aquatic ecosystems; (2) computational limnology- that is, the development and analysis of large and diverse environmental data sets to address questions about the dynamics of freshwater ecosystems; and (3) collaboration.
