Research Interests

I study interactions between climate, erosion and tectonics with a focus on orographic precipitation and anthropogenic influences on landscape evolution. Active areas of research include: 1) measurement and modeling of climatological precipitation patterns at scales from 1km – 100km, 2) characterization of erosion rates in areas of spatially variable precipitation, 3) analysis of sediment sources and fluxes in agricultural landscapes, and, 3) numerical landscape evolution modeling. Field areas include the Olympic Mountains of Washington State, the Western Ghats of India, the Swiss Alps, and the Midwestern United States.
