Sustainable flows & Ecosystem services in Southeast Oklahoma

I have worked on a variety of projects in southeastern Oklahoma related to: land cover/use change, environmental management flows, ecosystem services, and endangered species (including freshwater mussels and interior least terns). I work closely with Dr. Caryn Vaughn (University of Oklahoma), Dr. Antonio Castro (Idaho State University), and Dr. Carla Atkinson (University of Alabama) on these projects.
