Areas of Expertise

Stream ecology

Research Interests

My research is in stream ecology and involves work in several areas. These areas include: effects of disturbance on stream ecosystems; organic matter dynamics in streams; secondary production and ecology of aquatic invertebrates; manipulation of stream food webs; invertebrate community structure in streams; and, role of aquatic invertebrates in stream ecosystem processes. Most of my current research centers on projects at the Coweeta Hydrological Laboratory in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina.
