My research explores how interactions among organisms
regulate and are regulated by the cycling of energy and materials in
ecosystems. I study primarily the
ecology of streams and rivers. I use
detailed natural history observations, field experiments, and quantitative
modeling to reveal how ecosystems work, with the aim of improving ecosystem
When not working, I enjoy ruthlessly pulling the plug on my
computer and finding the perfect spot to build a campfire.
