My research interests are focused on watershed processes, combining themes of water quality, runoff flowpaths and the effects of natural and anthropogenic disturbance (pollution, climate change, deforestation and wildfire) on hydrologic systems. I also enjoy topics related to resource management & geomorphology. Recent and current research projects include work on snowmelt, groundwater recharge and nutrient export in the Colorado Rockies; rapid hydrologic assessment of tropical forest watersheds in Panama, Ecuador and Malaysia; and the effects of forest fires on water quality and watershed processes in the Mountain West.
