Department of Geography
Research Interests: 
  • Wetland Hydrology
  • Wetland Condition Assessments
  • Climate Change Impacts on Wetland Structure and Function

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
