Ecohydrology Group

Associate Professor

The Ecohydrology Group is part of the Cornell Soil and Water Lab, a diverse group of highly collaborative researchers. Our work focuses largely on understanding interactions between physical hydrology and ecosystems, with the ultimate goal of developing better strategies for protecting water quality and the "natural" environment. Research activities are distributed more or less evenly among field work, analytical and numerical modeling, laboratory experimentation, and remote data acquisition, typically in combination. We are also continually in search of developing and/or applying new ways to measure, observe, or otherwise characterize environmental systems and processes.

My personal interests are broad and include hydrology-microbial ecology interactions, environmental fluid mechanics, hydrological transport processes, cold-regions hydrology, watershed modeling, environmental biophysics, and watershed biogeochemistry.
