My work spans topics in geomorphology, sedimentology, and physical hydrology. I combine quantitative field methods with reduced complexity numerical and analytical modeling to explore the internal morphodynamics of sedimentary systems and responses to environmental forcing, such as climate change.
Check out the Research Blog for timely updates, Research Topics for broad descriptions of my scientific interests, and my curriculum vitae is available in the About section.
