Aquatic Ecology, Biogeochemistry
I am an assistant professor of Environmental Science in the Department of Life and Earth Sciences at Concordia University Wisconsin. Prior to arriving at CUW, I studied at the University of Wyoming where I worked with Dr. Bob Hall. I earned my masters degree from Ball State University working with Dr. Mel Bernot.
My research interests are broadly within aquatic ecology and biogeochemistry. Specifically, I am interested in using quantitative measurements of stream nitrogen biogeochemistry to explain spatial variation in stream nutrient processing and aquatic microbial production. Additionally, I am studying curriculum development and pedagogical styles to improve ecology and introductory biology courses.
