Research Scientist - Stream and watershed biogeochemist

My research program aims to increase our understanding of the biogeochemical, hydrological and ecological processes which influence surface water quality. Particularly, my team and I focus on processes which alter the form, bioavailability, transient storage and transport of nutrients such as phosphorus, nitrogen, silicon and iron in freshwater systems.
