My research interest is in ecosystem science, environmental chemistry and biogeochemistry. I investigate the response of forest, wetland, freshwater and marine ecosystems to disturbances, such air pollution, land-use change, domestic and industrial waste, and climate change. My research largely involves field research, but also includes the application of environmental models. This work mostly involves environmental issues in the eastern U.S. and is oriented toward providing information that is relevant to the effective management of natural resources. Research funding is provided by the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, different private foundation and the USDA Forest Service. My current research program is as indicated on side bar.
