Professional Interests:

Mark is a hydrologist, focused on forests and their role in regulating water movement and water quality. He and his students study the hydrologic cycle using water tracing techniques and data mining of large public databases. He teaches graduate classes in data visualization, forest ecology, and watershed hydrology. A major aspect of Mark’s work is serving as a research hydrologist with the Northern Research Station of the U.S. Forest Service.
