Current Research

My current research activities focus on carbon sequestration and cycling in mangrove ecosystems. At present, my investigations have been focused on the Zambezi Delta in Mozambique, with plans to expand to other sites in Mozambique and Tanzania within the next year. My work is part of The Sustainable Wetlands Adaptation and Mitigation Program (SWAMP), a collaborative effort by the USFS and Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) with support from the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

Research Interests

Hydrologic processes in mangroves and the role those processed play in controlling ecosystem structure and function

Past Research

Past interests include quantification of submarine groundwater discharge to lake and coastal environments through the use of radioisotope tracers.
