Charles received his B.S. in Environmental Sciences and M.A. in Geography from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research focused on streamflow variation as a result of long-term vegetation-climate interactions at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory and LTER. His dissertation combines empirical analyses from his masters with hydrologic modeling to explore how land-use/landcover change amid future climate change alter regional streamflow patterns.
