My current research focus is on application of linked hydrodynamic and biological models to simulate impacts of harmful algal blooms, hypoxia, and invasive species on ecosystem services provided by the Great Lakes to society. Recent projects include development of harmful algal bloom and hypoxia forecast models for Lake Erie.
My previous research topics have included field measurements and modeling of the fate and transport of persistent organic pollutants in the Great Lakes.
