Tim's research and teaching activities are largely focused on field-based watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry. He received his BA in environmental biology with a minor in biochemistry from the University of Colorado. Tim then moved to Bozeman, Montana where he obtained his MS in physical hydrology and PhD in watershed hydrology at Montana State University. In January of 2014 he joined the Department of Ecosystem Science and Sustainability as an Assistant Professor of watershed hydrology and biogeochemistry. His research seeks to understand how watershed shape, channel network geometry, land-use, and land cover influence the movement of water, material, and energy across landscapes.
