I study watersheds through the lens of coupled social-ecological systems. A scientific understanding of watershed processes in the Anthropocene must be coupled with an analysis of the governance, institutional, and economic conditions that drive human use – and potential restoration of – watershed resources. My research aims to understand how watershed science can be integrated with systems of human management to improve the condition of watershed resources, and to better support ecosystems and human communities.
