Energy analysis

I utilize ecological modeling to understand carbon and nutrient cycling in waste treatment systems at different scales. I also use energy analysis using emergy language to quantify the environmental costs and benefits of low-cost waste treatment systems and life cycle assessments. My research strives to advance broader theoretical knowledge in nutrient cycling and methane fluxes, resulting in new low-cost, practical applications for the use of ecological processes that provide important societal services while protecting the environment.
