I am interested in understanding how coastal ecosystems respond to nutrient enrichment and how these further respond to nutrient concentration decrease and other mitigation strategies. Currently, I am focusing on floating wetlands and their potential for nitrogen removal on mesohaline water of the Chesapeake Bay. The goal of this experiment is to provide well-constrained estimates of nitrogen uptake by floating wetlands and provide information about how floating wetlands can help mitigate the effects of nitrogen pollution.
