Research Assistant Professor
I study catchment processes related to sediment and water movement at or near the earth’s surface. I am especially interested in the sedimentary and erosion signatures of extreme floods and how rivers interact with adjacent aquifers. My research informs water resource management, infrastructure planning, and fisheries management.
