I. Hydrological, climatic and biogeochemical controls on phosphorus mobilization in agricultural landscapes

  • Experimental and observational work on hydrobiogeochemical processes
  • Control of non-growing season processes in surface and subsurface flow/tile drainage
  • Vadose zone hydrologic and biogeochemical processes
  • Freeze-thaw cycles and nutrient dynamics
  • Developing predictive relationships and metrics for nutrient mobilization
  • Importance of climate drivers such as frost and precipitation form on nutrient mobilization
  • Soil reactivity and phosphorus retention in croplands
  • *Currently seeking MSc and PhD students for funded projects​​​​​*
