Interests and Expertise

My research interests include the physical, chemical, and ecological processes that link weather, climate, and anthropogenic activity to the fluvial transport and watershed export of materials. Specifically, I study water cycling and the movement of fine suspended sediments using fieldscale experiments, geochemical fingerprinting, and mathematical models.
