About me

I am the Rudy L. Slingerland Early Career Professor of Geosciences at Penn State. My research addresses hydrologic system responses to environmental change. I am interested in (1) developing methods to help quantify the relative impacts of human and natural drivers on hydrologic systems, (2) developing models of the system to project future conditions and test management strategies, and (3) using field observations and modeling to improve our understanding of fundamental physical processes. To address these goals, I use field instrumentation and observations, numerical and statistical models, GIS, and laboratory analyses.

Current research

Much of my current work aims to improve agricultural management practices to protect water supplies from over-exploitation and contamination while meeting food security goals.
