My research interests principally are in the areas of hydrology and water resource management, with specific emphasis on evaluating water quality in urban-impacted water bodies. In particular, I'm interested in source trackdown of indicator bacteria, various organic (PCBs and PAHs), and inorganic (metals) contaminants; evaluation of the impacts that combined sewer overflows have on receiving water bodies; and demonstration and assessment of combined sewer overflow abatement and stormwater management options (including natural and constructed wetlands).
This research involves both extensive field work and use of mathematical models such as the Stormwater Management Model and BASINS (Better Assessment Science Integrating Point and Nonpoint Sources). Projects have been completed in western New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ontario, and Manitoba but increasingly, my geographic focus has turned to Southeast Asia.
