About

I am interested in the modeling and synthesis of large-scale data sets for watersheds. In particular, my doctoral research focuses on source, fate, and export of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment from watersheds. Specific areas include (1) evaluation of long-term river water-quality trends and uncertainties; (2) improvement of statistical methods for riverine flux estimation and trend analysis; (3) analysis of patterns of watershed constituent export and controlling factors.
