About Me:

I delineate wetlands for the Wetland Science Group. I also assist Dr. Robert Darmody in College of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences (NRES) with the UIUC soil judging team. My research interests include understanding how the forest soils change on a long-term basis by utilizing ecosystems in Maine and Illinois. I specifically determine chemical changes in an upland forest soil in central Illinois in response to reduced acidic deposition inputs, assess chemical changes in a bottomland floodplain soil in central Illinois that receives periodic sediment inputs, and examine soil formation processes in a Maine spruce-fir soil.
