Dr. Moffett's core research areas are HYDROLOGIC DYNAMICS and ECOHYDROLOGY.
The Hydrologic Dynamics and Ecohydrology research group takes an interdisciplinary view of the linked roles of groundwater, surface water, and plant-water interactions in the spatially and temporally variable physical, chemical, and biological cycles of the Earth System. Our research broadly addresses four coupled sets of interactions:
. Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions
. Plant-Water Interactions
. Land-Atmosphere Interactions
. Land-Ocean Interactions
These topics are combined in our two principal group focus areas, at present:
. Intertidal Ecohydrology and Ecogeomorphology
. Land-Atmosphere Coupling via Linked Evapotranspiration-Carbon-Energy Fluxes
We use field studies, numerical modeling, remote sensing analysis, and laboratory experimentation to answer compelling and important research questions from plant and pore to planetary scales. We are always open to new and exciting ideas, collaborations, and methods!

I am studying hydrology and biogeochemistry, with an emphasis on wet systems. My thesis investigates a water and nitrogen balance within the islands of the Wax Lake Delta in southern Louisiana. I am advised by Dr. Kevan Moffett.
