Research areas include creating models and statistical methods for estimating components of lake metabolism, particle transport, and microbial communities, and stream fish populations. Three main research interests at the present time are methods of estimating components of lake metabolism based on free-water dissolved-oxygen (DO) dynamics, evolutionary ecology of invasive aquatic plants, and turbulent transport of suspended particles (e.g., fine particulate organic matter, microorganisms, and invertebrate larvae) in streams.
