Interests and Expertise
Dave works with watershed groups in the Delaware River basin to help build capacity to monitor and detect change in stream conditions. In support of this, he is developing monitoring methods centered around Stroud™ Water Research Center’s Mayfly data logger board and EnviroDIY sensor stations. He is assisting watershed groups in integrating these approaches into their programs and customizing them according to their specific needs. Dave is also facilitating watershed ecology and monitoring workshops in support of citizen science in the Delaware River basin.
