Research interests

My research focuses on understanding the onset, propagation and recovery of drought in riparian ecosystems in the southwestern US, in particular California and Arizona. I am interested in understanding the effects of mulit-year droughts on subsurface water availability and the effects it has on ecosystems, through stable isotope dendrochronology and isotopic analysis of plants and water.
