Welcome! We study how watersheds and streams transport and transform nutrients and carbon and how human activities modify these processes.
News and Updates
The lab is growing! We are excited to welcome two new Ph.D. students, Camden Hatley and Shreya Chatterjee, in fall 2022! Stay tuned to hear about their research!
We are thrilled to announce that a team of scientists from KGS and KSU received funding from the USDA to study the future of water sustainability in the Kansas River! Check out this article from KU Today for more information on this upcoming project.
New paper alert! Check out two exciting new papers - one led by fellow KGS colleague Sam Zipper on alternative stables states and hydrological regime shifts in intermittent rivers (out in ERL), and another led by Emilio Grande on using wavelet analysis to understand redox variability in salt marsh ecosystems (out in HP)!
2021 Our paper "Land use and season influence event-scale nitrate and soluble reactive phosphorus exports and stoichiometry from headwater catchments," led by the incomparable Dustin Kincaid, received the 2020 WRR Editor's Choice Award!
Welcome to our newest lab member, Connor Brown, who will be working on his PhD as part of the AIMS project!
Check out our new paper on classifying and quantifying synchrony and asynchrony in ecosystems! 2020
Lots of exciting news in the lab! I'm thrilled to be part of 3 newly funded projects that are kicking off in fall 2020:
Critical Zone Observatory Network Cluster - Using Big Data Approaches to Assess Ecohydrologic Resilience Across Scales. For more info, please read our press release.
EPSCoR Track II - Aquatic Intermittency Effects on Microbiomes (AIMS). Click here to read more about this project.
DOE Subsurface Biogeochemical Research - Linking Nutrient Reactivity and Transport in Subsurface Flowpaths along a Terrestrial-Estuarine Continuum. Check out our project abstract to learn more!
Check out our recently published study on the effects of land use and hydrologic variability on regional dissolved organic carbon and nitrate export in Biogeochemistry!
I'm excited to announce that I'm starting a new position as an Assistant Scientist at the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas!
