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 P) cycling and transport in watersheds and decadal-centennial-millennial timescale climate variability in the Southern Rocky Mountains. I have been a faculty member of BGES at Cleveland State University since 2006.
Research Interests:
1. Assessment of the impacts of agricultural practices on dryland ecosystems
2. Real-time hydrologic monitoring and water quality forecasting
3. Decadal and century timescale climate variability in American Southwest
4. Nutrient management for the Lake Erie Drainage Basin
5. Development of analysis methods for dissolved P species in the environment
Teaching Areas:
Global Biogeochemical Cycles
Environmental Geology
Climate Changes
Hydrologic Modeling
