My research focuses on three interconnected themes related to understanding, representing and predicting the movement of water through the landscape: 1) Understanding the partitioning and transport of water along flow pathways within spatially (dis)connected landscape units, and developing novel ways to represent hydrologic dynamics at landscape scales. 2) Understanding the origins of spatially and temporally structured hydrologic behavior in the coupled co-evolution of hydrologic, geomorphic, soil and ecological systems, and 3) Understanding the effects of the legacy of human land use on the hydrologic behavior of restored ecosystems.
