Mark is interested in the synergy between physical and biological processes in stream systems. While conducting assessments of long-term, watershed-scale restoration projects in Oregon, he researched the interactions of hydraulics, macro-invertebrates, temperature and salmonids to better understand how these processes interact to create stream habitat. His goal is to directly integrate ecological benefit into stream restoration design through this research.

Mark has a diverse set of experiences including The Peace Corps Honduras, The National Park Service, Carnegie Institute of Science at Stanford University and environmental consulting. Through his multi-disciplinary experiences, he brings an informed and unique perspective to stream and wetland restoration.
