Todd V. Royer is an aquatic ecologist specializing in water resources, nutrient and carbon cycling, water quality, and nutrient standards. He joined the O’Neill School of Public and Enviromental Affairs in 2005 and also serves as an adjunct professor with the Department of Biology at IU.
Royer’s research investigates the ecological and biogeochemical processes that affect water quality in streams and rivers. Much of his work is conducted in agricultural landscapes where non-point sources of nutrients and other pollutants are a threat to water quality and ecological health.
