Research Interests: to investigate water flow paths that deliver nitrogen and carbon to stream ecosystems and to determine the impact of their delivery on stream ecosystem function. The objective of this research is to develop a hydrologic model that describes the sources of water to White Clay Creek watershed, and to determine how changes in DOC and N as a result of the activation of different flow paths influence in-stream N transformations.
