I am broadly interested in ecosystem dynamics of rivers
and streams. Specific research areas in our lab
include aquatic biogeochemistry and how it is affected
by restoration and management activities and river-wetland
connections. These themes are being pursued via studies
of geomorphic and ecological effects of dam removal
and other stream restoration projects, and carbon dynamics
in northern Wisconsin streams and wetlands. This
final project falls under the umbrella of the North
Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research (http://lter.limnology.wisc.edu/)
program, and is in collaboration with the U.S. Geological
Survey’s Wisconsin Water, Energy, and Biogeochemistry
