My interests are in geomorphology and related fields such as fluvial hydrology, sediment transport, stream and wetland restoration, Quaternary paleoclimate, and geographic information systems (GIS).  I also have experience with computer simulations of global climate (using general circulation models, or GCMs), downscaling global-climate estimates to local scales (statistical climate models and dynamical models such as the Weather Research and Forecasting Model, or WRF), and modeling land-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks.
