Areas of Expertise
Watershed Management, Stormwater Hydrology, Landscape Restoration, Urban Design
My research integrates the fields of landscape architecture, land use planning, ecological restoration, and watershed protection. I take a holistic approach to sustainable landscape design, recognizing the inherent diversity of landscapes and practicing the art of place-making, while aiming to facilitate healthy societal and ecological interactions through design. My current research interests include analysis of watershed-scale impacts associated with urban and rural land uses, the application of green infrastructure for stormwater management, ecological agriculture, and working landscapes.
