My lab is interested in tropical stream ecology in forest and urban settings. Our research focuses on factors controlling stream biota and ecosystem function in the context of climate change. In Puerto Rico, we are particularly interested on the effects of droughts and hurricanes on stream ecosystems. In Costa Rica, we are focused on interactions between ground- and stream water in controlling stream processes.
