Fluvial Geomorphology

At Western Washington University

About Me

Hi, I'm Allison Pfeiffer. I'm an Assistant Professor in the Geology Department at Western Washington University in beautiful Bellingham, WA. My work focuses on the geomorphology of gravel-bedded rivers. I dabble in remote sensing and numerical modeling, but my inspiration comes from the field. Go to the 'Projects' page for more details.

Before starting at Western, I was an NCED 2 Synthesis Postdoctoral Fellow studying geomorphology at the University Washington. I split my time between the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department (working with Erkan Istanbulluoglu) and the Earth and Space Science Department (with Dave Montgomery), as well as working with Jon Czuba at Virginia Tech. Before starting in Seattle, I was a graduate student at the University of California Santa Cruz, working with Noah Finnegan.
