  1. Benefit-cost evaluation of green infrastructure for combined sewage overflows (CSOs) in Lower Passaic and Newark Bay 
  2. Analyze land use change and watershed level impacts under a suite of existing and potential switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) production scenarios in Northeastern United States 
  3. Impact of forest degradation on watershed function in the oceanic island of Mauritius
