My research mainly deals with the fluxes and flows of water (hydrology) in anthropogenically disturbed (e.g., harvesting, mining, climate change)  peatlands; I am also interested in how the local hydrogeomorphic setting (combination of hydrology, climatology, geomorphology) influences both the peatland’s form and function, as well as the implications for restoration techniques/strategies.

I am currently investigating some abandoned vacuum-harvested sites in Eastern Manitoba (Moss Spur) and need students who aren’t afraid of a few mosquitoes (ok… more than a few)! See my Students page for current students/projects.
