A professor of ecology in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, Grimm also is a senior sustainability scientist in ASU’s Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. She studies how climate change and human activities affect ecological processes in aquatic and urban ecosystems. Her ongoing research includes studies of the flow of nutrients through urban stormwater systems, the ecosystem services stormwater infrastructure provides and how climate change and variability impact the response of streams to disturbances like floods and droughts.
