My interests are focused on the biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology of urban environments. I am interested in understanding how the activities of humans on the land affect water quality primarily in terms of the chemical constituents dissolved in the water. To date, my research has focused on nitrogen, phosphorus, and carbon cycling in flowing waters. In addition, I am interested in how emerging contaminants like pharmaceuticals and personal care products affect ecosystem functions in aquatic environments. Examples of these ecosystem functions include gross primary production and respiration, decomposition, nutrient assimilation, and denitrification. Although my primary interests are in the ecology of aquatic ecosystems, I am also very interested in the societal implications of water quality issues, both in terms of how we as humans think about our water and use our water resources as well as how our water resources affect society as a whole. For example, a research project I worked on a postdoctoral researcher in Baltimore studied the effect of stream restoration on nitrogen export to the Chesapeake Bay, but also linked this ecological effect with economic impacts of restoration and how these restorations changed the opinions of citizens in the neighborhood.
