Research thus far has focused on the measurement and understanding of biogeochemical processes involved in carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling. Ecosystems of interest include both salt and freshwater wetland marshes, estuaries, lakes, rivers, and springs. A combination of traditional nutrient and flux analyses, enzyme activities, isotopic, and dissolved gas approaches are utilized. More recent studies have focused on indicators of restoration, fire biogeochemistry, nuisance algal blooms in estuaries, and identifying N sources and hotspots of denitrificatiuon in karst aquifers. The ultimate goal of this research is to better understand how environmental and anthropogenic factors control biogeochemical reactions with changing landscape and climate scenarios.
