Research

My research focuses primarily on using quantitative and qualitative techniques to inform environmental decision making.  Most of my work is in aquatic environments (small streams, large rivers, and estuaries) in the southeastern United States, but I've been lucky enough to work on projects all around the country.  Topically, my research can be lumped into the three, overlapping categories shown below.
