Curriculum Vitae


I am a Professor in the Department of Geosciences at Idaho State University and am interested in the processes that sculpt landscapes. In particular, I am fascinated how Earth’s surface responds to climatic, tectonic and anthropogenic disturbance. I enjoy exploring the rate and form of landscape adjustment (largely rivers and hillslopes) over both human and geologic timescales. To accomplish this, I synthesize data from field observations, digital topographic analysis, geochronology, numerical modeling, physical experimentation and remote sensing. Strong collaborative ties with terrestrial, riparian and aquatic ecologists, hydrologists, biogeochemists and others enable me to explore arctic and temperate ecosystem sensitivity to changes in climate and land management.

If you are interested in working together, I would love to hear from you.
