        Our research focuses on gaining a mechanistic understanding of sediment transport, river morphology, channel erosion, and hillslope processes.  In particular, we investigate the interactions between flow turbulence, sediment transport, hillslope sediment supply, and river morphology using  modeling, and field and laboratory experiments.  This knowledge is then used to improve predictions of flow and sediment flux throughout river systems.
