Emily is broadly interested in the capacity of ecosystems to retain nutrients and energy, particularly in the face of human accelerated environmental change. Her research primarily focuses on how ecosystem carbon and nutrient cycles are altered by climate and land cover change. The majority of her research to date has taken place in aquatic ecosystems. Her current research is about biogeochemistry in a watershed context and am working in upland and floodplain soils as well as stream channels and wetlands. She holds a B.S. in Biology from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a Ph.D. from Cornell University.
