I am a geologist interested in the intersection of ecohydrology and climate change. I have conduct laboratory experiments and use geochemical modeling to better understand how saltwater intrusion can affect nutrient availability in estuaries through water-rock interactions. I have also used ecological landscape modeling to envision how the Everglades landscape may respond to different scenarios of sea level rise and rainfall.
