My principal research interests involve ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry, with particular attention to aquatic environments and the movement of water through landscapes. I am especially interested in running waters, wetlands and floodplains because they represent an interface between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems that are often biologically diverse and productive. I also like to consider ecosystem processes at the landscape or watershed scale, and I prefer to do research that contributes to our understanding of environmental problems or improves our ability to manage ecosystems. In recent years I have increasingly conducted research on the agricultural ecology and the sustainability of crop production for food and biofuel.

Bacterial symbioses are nearly ubiquitous in the animals, and can be a driving force behind host evolution and development.  My lab studies the genetic, cellular, and molecular basis of beneficial host-microbe interactions using Euprymna scolopes, the Hawaiian bobtail squid, and its luminous symbiont Vibrio fischeri as a model system. In addition, my lab has a great interest in EvoDevo in the Spiralia, including in annelids such as leeches and the cephalopod molluscs.
