Aquatic ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, water quality, hydrology
The goal of Dr. Baker's research is to understand how water movement within the landscape influences ecosystem structure and function. She uses an interdisciplinary approach, involving tools from ecology, hydrology, and geochemistry to ask questions about how hydrologic linkages within watersheds influence energy flow and nutrient cycling.
