As a member of Riparia - formerly the Penn State Cooperative Wetlands Institute - I’m part of a research group that focuses on science to inform policy and practice in wetland ecology, landscape hydrology, and watershed management.
My current projects include:
- Integrating wetland ecological assessment methods and reference data into the Penn State Center for Nutrient Solutions
- Asssessing wetland vulnerability to climate change in the mid-Atlantic region, including developing a framework and expanding case studies for both inland and coastal wetlands
- Exploring the impact of climate change on glacier-wetland systems and the ecosystem services they provide in the Peruvian Andes and Southeast Alaska
