Hornbach is a freshwater ecologist. His research focuses on factors that influence
freshwater mussels in large river systems and involves many students, some of whom have
co-authored papers with him. 

Hornbach has been a consultant for government agencies concerned with threatened and
endangered species of native mussels and the invasion by zebra mussels.
