My current research project is to explore the "ex-urbanization" influences on in-stream biological processes on nitrogen and carbon. Ex-urbanization refers to housing development in headwater area. Those housing sites are typically patchy and small, but may have large influences on the hydrology, biology, and chemistry in the watershed system, as well as the downstream water quality. Mathematical models will be developed and used to simulate the responses of in-stream processes to ex-urbanization. Research Interests Carbon Flow, Nutrient Cycle, Stoichiometric model, Consumer and predator interaction, in-stream processes, hillslope hydrology, eco-hydrological interaction
