Research Interests

My research interests fall into three broad categories: occurrence and impacts of emerging contaminants on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems; agricultural management systems and water quality and policy; and land-atmosphere exchange of nitrogen under changing climate conditions.



 A simplified subsurface characterization for local-scale groundwater flow models in unconfined sand and gravel aquifers.

 Water security in Armenia, WI: Modeling for informed decision-making in a nitrate-impacted watershed.
