Research Interests:

Ecosystem Ecology, Nitrogen Biogeochemistry, and Watershed Studies

I am an ecosystem ecologist with broad interests in various environmental issues. An ecosystem can be defined as any bounded area on earth consisting of all the organisms and their interacting physical-chemical environment. An important ecosystem process my lab is focusing on is nitrogen (N) biogeochemical cycling; we are particularly interested in the fate of human-related, elevated input of N in natural forests. Watershed is a type of ecosystem in which anthropogenic pollution ends in surface and groundwater. My students and I have been involved in the study of local headwater watersheds that drain ultimately to the Chesapeake Bay. Other researches in my lab include studies in urban ecosystem, exotic plant species invasion, restoration ecology, and plant-soil interactions.
