Hydrologic Interfaces and Processes (HIP) Lab

Welcome to our group page. We study fundamental processes controlling carbon,  nutrient, and contaminant fate in natural aquatic systems. While this work spans a wide range of fields, it is unified by a goal of building predictive macroscale models that respect the variability underlying these fundamental processes. Research consists of laboratory experiments ranging in scale from micrometers to meters, field experiments in streams at the scale of tens to hundreds of meters, and stochastic modeling to connect these scales.

The following underlying questions drive our research activities:

  1. What are the primary controls of water quality in freshwater systems?
  2. How does hydrologic variability drive how streams and rivers respond to large-scale environmental change?
  3. How are these responses coupled to human decisions?
