Research Interests

My research interests span a broad range of surficial geologic realms. My principal background and research focus lies in the application of Quaternary geology and geomorphology to paleoclimatic and active tectonic investigations. I am currently pursuing projects in these realms in Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, and New Zealand.

I also apply my background in surficial geology to hydrogeology. I am involved in current projects in eastern Idaho, exploring the impacts of bedrock and unconsolidated sediments on groundwater flow and groundwater quality, and have worked extensively on public groundwater protection efforts.
