Research Interests

My research is in the field of Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology. I am interested in natural landscapes and the geologic processes responsible for their formation. My research has focused on the following topics (see publications):

  • Pleistocene glaciations of the Rocky Mountains and adjacent areas
  • Yellowstone caldera unrest
  • The track of the Yellowstone hotspot: Volcanism, faulting and uplift
  • Quaternary faulting and neotectonics
  • Geologic controls on ecology of the greater Yellowstone area
  • Wyoming-Idaho loess deposits and climate history over the last 150,000 years
