Personal profile

Personal profile

I have worked on the fluvial dynamics of streams in the Midwest for over 30 years.  My research interests range from investigations aimed at improving our basic scientific understanding of the geomorphology of rivers to studies focusing on issues of importance for river management and policy.   Much of my work emphasizes field measurements of process-form interactions, but through collaborations with colleagues at Illinois I also participate in projects that involve laboratory experiments and numerical modeling.
