Antibiotics in Animal Agriculture

Farmer perspectives of antibiotic transport

In this interview-based study of farmer perspectives, we discuss the different transport pathways farmers associate with antibiotics after an animal is treated as well as other topics related to antibiotic decision-making .

More movement with manure: Erythromycin adsorption and transport

In this lab-based study of erythromycin adsorption to soil and manure, we found that erythromycin adsorbs to soil strongly, but in the presence of manure, or manure-derived dissolved organic matter, it remains in solution.

Nutrient Pollution

Cattle exclusion riparian buffers to reduce phosphorus runoff

In this pre- and post- BMP implementation study, we assess the effectiveness of fence installation as a cattle exclusion riparian buffer around a small, first-order stream and some important considerations for buffer design and maintenance. 

Water Tracers

Using encapsulated DNA as a water tracer

In these studies, we use synthetic DNA encapsulated in a biodegradable plastic coating to trace contaminants and water in experiments with unknown water flow-paths (subglacial flow and septic leachate flow) and potentially many contributing contaminant sources.  

Macroplastic Pollution

Macroplastics in roadside ditches

In this study we collected macroplastics from roadside ditches associated with agricultural, commercial, forested, and residential land uses to assess terrestrial macroplastic accumulation on piece, mass, and type bases. Our data collection spanned both before and during COVID-19 quarantine restrictions. 


Collaborative & interdisciplinary learning

In this teaching-as-research study, we analyze students' perspectives of collaborative learning while assessing impacts of collaboration on student work products between a landscape architecture studio and an environmental engineering capstone design course. 


Multiple Modes of Teaching and Learning

In this teaching-as-research study, we analyze the effect of changing how we teach on student outcomes.  We tested the effect of three teaching modalities (traditional lecture, hands-on modeling, and small group design-analysis) on student enthusiasm for content and hydrology careers, course grades, and student engagement during class. We found how you teach changes who you reach!
