My research group broadly aims to understand the role of natural and built infrastructure in the cycling of pollutants and protecting our water resources as nature-based solutions. Specifically, our current work explores the interactions between hydrologic processes and biogeochemical cycles across terrestrial-aquatic interfaces (such as wetlands, the vadose zone, and the hyporheic zone) from site to watershed to continental scales using a combination of data synthesis, process-based models, geospatial analysis, and machine/deep learning. We are deeply interested in how the functionality of these ‘reactive interfaces’ are affected by climate change and other anthropogenic pressures and how this ultimately will affect the quality of our water resources. Our work aims to address questions of how we can sustainably manage and use these ecosystems at large scales while balancing societal and environmental tradeoffs.
