We are interested in how hydrology, hydraulics, and geomorphology
influence ecological health and water quality in stream, river, wetland,
and groundwater systems.
Our goal is to advance process-based knowledge to allow better
informed and more sustainable restoration design, pollutant attenuation by natural processes, watershed planning,
and energy generation.
