Matthew Cashman is a Geomorphologist at the MD-DE-DC Water Science Center.
Matthew's interests are in the interdisciplinary interactions between hydrology, geomorphology, and ecology. His current research focuses on machine-learning modeling of ecological and habitat conditions, erosion and habitat mapping using Unmanned Aerial Systems and gage data, and developing tools to identify the sources of sediment degrading river habitat, including sediment fingerprinting.
