My research primarily focuses on predicting changes in surface water quality in fresh, estuarine, and coastal ecosystems as a function of land use, water management, agricultural practices, climate, and weather. We use a combination of modeling (process-based, machine learning, and statistical) and observational monitoring platforms (in situ field instrumentation, satellite remote sensing) to advance understanding of how water quality changes in response to wide ranging stressors.
