Graduate Students

Personal and Research Interest

I am interested in the source, transport and fate of fine sediment and associated nutrients in watersheds. In particular, I am interested in investigating the hydrological processes that link land management, erosion and sediment transport with water quality. I am interested in climate change science and its impacts on water resources. Other interests include the application of active learning pedagogies in higher education.

My specializations include:
