I'm currently an associate professor at the Appalachian Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. When I'm not getting into trouble for something, I'm working on conservation, risk assessment, and restoration related research in both terrestrial and aquatic systems (primarily streams). Research is just my day job - my real passions these days are building furniture and working on the property that Katia and I bought in 2000.
