Biography

As a research hydrologist and geomorphologist, my previous research has generally followed two trajectories: 1) geomorphic response to disturbance including dam removal, surface coal mining, and invasive species and 2) characterizing patterns and controls on flow permanence of intermittent and ephemeral rivers and streams.  My current focus includes broadening flow permanence research to the Pacific Northwest region and evaluating changes in sediment and stream water temperature regimes and associated implications on river ecosystem health in Pacific Northwest mountain rivers.
