Dr. Christina Tague is an associate professor in the Bren School of Environmental Science & Management at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Her research interests include studying interactions between hydrology and ecosystem processes and exploring how eco-hydrologic systems are altered by climate and land use change. Her work focuses on the development and use of spatial simulation models to integrate data from a variety of sources and generalize results from intensive field-based monitoring studies to larger watersheds. Dr. Tague is one of the principal developers of RHESSys, Regional hydro-ecologic simulation system, a coupled model of spatially distributed carbon, water and nitrogen cycling. This modeling approach seeks to provide science-based information on spatial patterns of vulnerability in water quantity and quality, and ecosystem health. Current projects include modeling climate change impacts on summer streamflow patterns in the mountains of the Western US, and examining how urbanization alter drainage patterns and associated biogeochemical cycling at part of the Baltimore Long Term Ecological Research Site and in selected Southern California watersheds. Dr. Tague received her Ph.D. from the Department of Geography at the University of Toronto, Canada and has an undergraduate degree from the Department of Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo, Canada.
