Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering College of Engineering and Computer Science, Syracuse University
My teaching and research interests are in the area of environmental chemistry, biogeochemistry and water quality modeling. I have initiated a number of research projects and used a variety of approaches to study the biogeochemistry of forest, wetland, freshwater and coastal ecosystems, including field investigations, laboratory studies, long-term field measurements, whole-ecosystem manipulation studies, and the development and application of models. I have authored or co-authored more than 450 peer-reviewed articles and have had more than 112 funded research projects. I have received numerous awards and honors. In 1984, I was designated as a Presidential Young Investigator by the National Science Foundation. I am a member of the National Academy of Engineers. I have provided expert testimony on ecological effects of air pollution to U.S. Senate and House of Representatives committees. I have been acknowledged by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) as one of the top 250 most highly cited researchers in two areas: environmental science and engineering. I have served on many local, national and international committees including National Research Council and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency committees. I am interested in advancing science communication, and participating in the Science Policy Exchange.
