K.R. Reddy
Graduate Research Professor

Conducts basic and applied research on biogeochemical cycling of nutrients/contaminants. Investigates coupled biogeochemical cycles in natural ecosystems, e.g. wetlands, shallow lakes, estuaries, springs, and constructed wetlands, as related to water quality, carbon sequestration, and climate change.Develops biogeochemical indicators to evaluate changes in ecosystem functions in wetlands and aquatic systems.

Wetland biogeochemical processes, carbon sequestration, soil organic matter and nutrient dynamics, and land management impacts on soil and water quality in agricultural, wetland, and urban systems. More info.


Associate Faculty

James Jawitz

Emphasis on minimizing human impacts on natural hydrologic ecosystems, including watersheds, wetlands, and aquifers. Develops techniques for characterization and remediation of contaminated soil and groundwater. More Info.


Sue Newman
Courtesy Assistant Professor

Conducts research to examine the effects of nutrients and hydrology on the ecology of Everglades marshes and tree islands. Sue’s current research includes the cattail habitat improvement project (CHIP), a large-scale field experiment designed to examine how creating openings in the dense vegetation of enriched and moderately areas of the Everglades will result in increased ecological structure and function. More info.

Andy Ogram

Studies the adaptation of microbial communities to human impacts, including shifts in microbial community structure in upland and wetland soils. Research interests also include the molecular evolution xenobiotic-degrading genes and mobile DNA elements in soil bacteria. More info.
