Research InterestsMy research program focuses on the protection and restoration of stream and wetland systems, including quantifying how riparian vegetation reinforces streambanks and changes flow energy, improving the measurement and modeling cohesive streambank erosion, and evaluating how changes in water chemistry affect bank erosion rates. This research is conducted at the StREAM Lab, an outdoor stream laboratory near the VT main campus. To improve urban stormwater bioretention design, I have designed, constructed, and monitored full scale systems. Currently, I am collaborating on the development of an improved wetland water balance design model, specifically focusing on improving surface water hydrology calculations used in common design models.
