Water, Soils and Environmental Systems

I am broadly interested in the effects of climate change and other stressors on wetland ecology. My research emphasizes the response of tidal marshes to climate change, especially sea-level rise and salt-water intrusion through field measurements, greenhouse experiments, and outdoor laboratory and field manipulations. My overall goal is to better understand the complex feedbacks between plants, animals, and changing physical environments that will ultimately determine marsh resilience to climate change.

My research interests are focused in two general areas: 1) impacts of forest management on soil properties and long- term site productivity and 2) utilization of forests and trees in waste recycling and site remediation. I teach a variety of courses ranging from a general course on the natural history of Georgia to courses on waste recycling to forests. I have strong interests in international programs and have been a leader developing programs with Brazilian colleagues.

I conduct trans-disciplinary investigations of water quality issues in collaboration with faculty from Crop and Soil Sciences, Ecology, Engineering, Entomology, Geography, Geology, Marine Sciences, and other programs. Investigators of water resource issues at the University of Georgia are broadly distributed across schools and disciplines. I am a member of IRIS - Institute for Resilient Infrastructure Studies and the RBC - Riber Basin Center. For more information on water programs at UGA, see the link below.
