Expertise:

  • Effects of changing hydrologic conditions on biogeochemical processes (carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus) in both natural and disturbed environments
  • Cover crops and phosphorus retention on fields
  • Hydrologic change from land-use modifications (e.g. agriculture, drainage) or climate variability
  • Year-round phosphorus losses in tile drain effluent and how these losses are affected by tillage practices in agriculture
  • Hydrological and biogeochemical processes in northern peatlands, and how these processes may change under a warmer climate
