Brief Bio:
I am interested in the physical, chemical and biological processes of the Earth's surficial environment (low T and P) on a range of temporal (decadal to millennial) and spatial (up to 1000 km) scales. Currently I am working on projects related to nutrient (S and C) cycling and transport in watersheds and forms of P in sediments of Lake Erie. I have been a faculty member of BGES at Cleveland State University since 2006.
