Professional Biography

I am a physical geographer and geomorphologist with research interests in fluvial geomorphology, hydrology, late Quaternary environmental change, alluvial stratigraphy, floodplain pedogenesis, geoarchaeology, and human modifications of river systems. My work investigates the development and behavior of geomorphic systems over timescales ranging from decades to several millennia.
