We are ecosystem ecologists studying biogeochemical cycles and linkages between physical, chemical and biological structure and function in aquatic habitats.

Our research falls into 4 categories:

    1. the spatial and temporal patterns of nitrogen fixation and denitrification in aquatic habitats

    2. stream-watershed-lake interactions in the Great Lakes

    3. consequences of restoration for stream and lake ecosystem processes

    4. ecosystem perspectives on community interactions and resource subsidies
