Innovation requires a diversity of thinking and widespread collaboration. My goal is to connect researchers across the globe to drive the scientific community towards addressing society’s greatest concern–sustainable management of earth and human systems. Among my primary research interests are:

•The connectivity of hydrological and biogeochemical cycles

•The sensitivity of ecosystem dynamics and services to future change

•The sustainability of resource management practices
