Research Interests

I research how changing climates, surface processes, and tectonic forcings determine the landscapes we see around us, by testing theoretical models of landscape evolution and geodynamics against geomorphological, thermochronological and sedimentalogical observations. Recently, this research has involved fieldwork in the Olympic Mountains, the Patagonian Andes, and the Ross Sea.
