Research Interests

I am fascinated by the physical and biological processes through which the Earth's surface responds to climatic, tectonic and anthropogenic disturbance. I enjoy exploring the response time and morphology of landscape adjustment (rivers, hillslopes, coastlines and the species that inhabit them) and the implications of this adjustment over both human and geologic timescales.
