Research in my laboratory is devoted to understanding patterns and processes in freshwater ecosystems. In particular, we're interested in the linkages between food web dynamics and ecosystem ecology, with an emphasis on bridging theory and application. We use tools from bioenergetic (e.g., growth, secondary production) and stoichiometric (i.e., content and recycling of essential elements [C:N:P]) frameworks to link species to whole-ecosystem material fluxes, and to examine effects of altered carbon and nutrient regimes on freshwater ecosystem structure and function.

My research focuses on the mass balance of the Greenland ice sheet. Particularly, I am interested in how the hundreds of outlet glaciers around the margin of the ice sheet change. These changes are linked to atmosphere and ocean conditions, and present fascinating questions on 1-km and 100-km scales. Most of my work is conducted using observational data from satellites, so I'm familiar with remote sensing and GIS techniques that have a wide range of applications.
