Our lab’s research interests are directed towards understanding the complex and dynamic feedbacks between hydrology and ecology, and how these interactions may provide resilience against departures from stationary behavior caused by different disturbance or change scenarios. In particular, we focus on investigating the importance of small length-scale and short timescale variability and how it impacts the long-term, larger landscape behavior through differential partitioning of energy and water fluxes. Our approach to research begins with physical understanding of the coupled hydrologic-ecologic system, which is strongly dependent on lab experiments, field campaigns and remote sensing observations, followed by numerical representation using mechanistic models to upscale point processes to the catchment scale. Our work aims to expand the foundation of hydrologic science and thereby inform engineering solutions for better land and water resource management.
