I am studying organic matter sources and composition, and how they affect nutrients, organic contaminants, and heavy metals in aquatic environments. I am investigating the effects of climate change and watershed landuse on water quality of streams, and using Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) to predict future changes in nutrient and carbon inputs from land to the coastal ocean. I am also interested in hydrological model developments for tracking sources and in-stream processing of organic matter and nutrients.
