Climate Change Ecologist

As an ecohydrologist, I'm interested in how water moves through the ecosystem, and specifically how fluxes of carbon, water, and energy respond to precipitation that is becoming characterized by seasonal shifts, larger events, and longer dry periods. I have conducted research in grasslands, comparing water and carbon fluxes between cool and warm season dominated habitats. I'm currently developing climate change adaptation/action plans - completing the Indiana Dunes region in May 2018, and currently working on the Chicago Wilderness Prairie project.
