Research interests/biography

Harms is an expert in ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry. She is interested in the effects of spatial heterogeneity and hydrologic flowpaths on elemental cycles. She has studied desert riparian zones and streams, urban ecosystems, and boreal and arctic catchments. Her current research focuses on the potential consequences of permafrost loss and climate change for carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus cycles in high latitude catchments.
