As a hydrologist, my research explores how natural and anthropogenic factors affect water -- in streams, lakes, aquifers, rivers, and estuaries. Understanding processes that affect status and trends of water quality remains a grand challenge; given the need to represent elemental cycles within diverse landscapes, and to characterize spatial and temporal variability. I approach this from an interdisciplinary perspective, and have worked with over 300 collaborators from around the world on my publications about watersheds and water resources.
