My research explores interactions between geomorphic and biological processes which shape landscapes and define habitats and ecosystems in mountainous rivers and their watersheds. I am interested in natural dynamics of such bio-physical systems, their response to environmental change (e.g. land use and climate), as well as scientific basis for their management, conservation, and restoration. To study these interdisciplinary topics, my research team links fieldwork, remote sensing (especially aerial and terrestrial LiDAR, drone-based multi-view photogrammetry), and geospatial analysis.
