We need our best minds solving environmental problems.

 

Most recently, I have been looking at the influence of terrestrial disturbance events on streams, lakes and reservoirs. I am also interested in long-term changes in algal populations of reservoirs under different nutrient loading regimes. The impact of humans on aquatic ecosystems is also an area of research I am currently pursuing. Lastly, I have had a long-term interest in diatom floristics and ecology.

Demographics of the west are changing. This has lead to changes in public land policies. These changes are controversial and interesting. We will see major changes in the way our western public lands and waters are managed and accessed during the next few years. I am interested in understanding these issues. I am particularly interested in the interface between public access to the decision-making process and that of the U.S. and State Governments.
