- Working in biogeochemistry and ecology, Stephen E. MacAvoy has been particularly interested in areas where marine and freshwater systems interface such as those that appear in tidal aquatic environments. He studies how nutrients flow through and are utilized by aquatic ecosystem components. He has recently published in several interdisciplinary research journals, such as Marine Ecology Progress Series, Biogeochemistry, The Journal of Shellfish Research and Fisheries Bulletin. He is currently conducting research on the origin and fate of organic material in the Anacostia River, Washington DC and also developing models that describe how organisms incorporate nutrients and the importance of metabolism in this process.
