My research for the Ecohydrology lab is based around peatland hydrology and its effects on resilience and recovery after disturbance by wildfire. Fieldwork, primarily in the Utikuma Region Study Area in the Western Boreal Plain, will develop our understanding of the natural systems, pre and post disturbance. I have specific interests in the role of margin areas and feedbacks in the peatland ecosystems. This knowledge will be used to inform an existing peatland hydrology model and used to test thresholds of ecosystem collapse with respect to disturbance.
