I am an Assistant Scientist and Site Manager with the North Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research Program. My primary research interests focus around ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry. I am particularly interested in understanding the patterns of long-term change in aquatic ecosystems along with the local and regional factors that shape those patterns. My research program uses both field-based and data-intensive approaches; spans spatial gradients from individual lakes to continents; and draws on expertise in limnology, time series analyses, advanced environmental sensors, data science, and modeling. More information regarding research that I am involved in can be found here.
