I teach large-enrollment non-major courses in Soil Science and Environmental Science for the Sustainability Double-Degree program and the Crop and Soil Science Department at Oregon State University, both on the Corvallis campus and via OSU E-campus.

My research focuses changes in ecosystem services that result from human disturbances. I ask questions like:

  • How long can an ecosystem take up additional CO2 from the atmosphere, or additional anthropogenic nutrients from the soil, before we see adverse effects on ecosystems or humans?
  • How much of these added nutrients will they take up before they saturate and/or become limited by another nutrient or environmental factor?
  • How do other human disturbances, such as land use change or energy development, affect these capacities?
