At the present, my research is focused on geomorphometric processing and applications in large river basins. My interests are in large river systems, landscape evolution and fluvial-systems evolution, how geomorphic processes and patterns interact with other systems.
In my M.S. thesis I examined at how geomorphic structure influences ecosystem function at a small scale in an urban environment. To accomplish this, I used a combination of field measurement and sampling, remote sensing (LiDAR). I also used lab tests to examine the bank sediment particle size distribution and surface water nitrate concentration.
More generally, I'm interested in multi-scale system interactions (e.g. sediment cascades) and human impacts on the environment (i.e. legacy effects).
