Joint Appointment Department of Natural Resources and Environment
Ph.D. University of New Hampshire
Wil Wollheim received his Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire in 2005 (B.S. 1989, Cornell University; M.S. 1994, University of Wyoming). He is currently jointly appointed as Assistant Professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Environment (NRE) and in CSRC/EOS. He is also co-Director of the Water Systems Analysis Group. Wil's primary research interest is in understanding how humans are impacting the environment from watershed to global scales. His research focuses on understanding the hydrological and biogeochemical controls of carbon and nutrient cycling in aquatic systems, with several field and modeling projects underway in local watersheds draining to the Gulf of Maine, and several other projects that are developing models at national to global scales. Wil is also interested in understanding the impacts of urbanization, and feedbacks between human activities and ecosystem responses. Dr. Wollheim is a co-Investigator at the Plum Island Long Term Ecological Research site, where he leads the watershed research program charged with understanding how land use change and climate are influencing the flux of water and materials from the watersheds to the sound.
