Hierarchical functioning of river macrosystems in temperate steppes – from continental to hydrogeomorphic patch scales

For my postdoctoral research, I have been working on the MACRO project, which joins together a diverse group of scientists, graduate students and researchers from Mongolia, the USA, and Europe – focusing on macrosystem ecology as it relates to river basins in major temperate steppe regions of the world. My expertise in compound specific isotope analyses and the metrics and statistical analyses I have developed using the software “R” has been integral in contributing to this project. I assist with field work, and provide insight into food web analyses and models for a project that consists of looking at 18 rivers in 2 continents.
