My academic interests focus on examining the movement of carbon, nutrients, and water in terrestrial ecosystems, with emphasis on how they are changed by human activities and how those changes may affect human welfare. Most of my research has focused on understanding mechanisms and patterns of nutrient cycling at plot to regional scales, and working with local land managers to explore sustainable water and nutrient management practices. This foundation has informed my involvement in new collaborative projects that use network data resources and Earth system modeling frameworks to predict belowground processes at continental scales.
