My background integrates hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, water resources planning and policy, and environmental engineering. Most of my work has addressed applied problems, such as:

• Managing stream temperatures to support native salmonids in coastal California
• Managing quarry pumping discharge in a Cumberland County, Pennsylvania karst landscape
• Fluvial geomorphic monitoring of stream channel and riparian zone restoration on Larry’s Creek, Pennsylvania
• Economic efficiency of residential water conservation
• Impacts of residential soil compaction on infiltration and stormwater runoff in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania
