Geography & Environmental Resources



Bizzini Hall B217

I am interested in understanding how physical environments that have developed under unique conditions may evolve under changing conditions (i.e. a changing climate, particulate deposition on landscapes, chemical applications), and how these new conditions affect the distribution of plant and animal species. I am also interested in water accessibility and sustainability issues.  My research is influenced by Biogeography, Geomorphology, Landscape Ecology, and Geospatial Science.
