Blaszczak Watershed and Stream Ecosystem Ecology Lab
at the University of Nevada, Reno
Welcome! Our group studies the transformations and transport of nutrients, carbon, and contaminants through watersheds and the streams that drain them.
We are a growing group of freshwater scientists at the University of Nevada, Reno. We use a combination of field (environmental sensors), lab (analytical chemistry and mesocosm experiments), and modeling (mechanistic time-series models) approaches to address the questions we are most excited about!
