I am very broadly interested in Earth surface processes and morphodynamics. My dissertation research is focused on the co-evolution of flow and channel morphology in chute cutoff channels. I am also working on a number of other projects. These include: a study of the long-term planform evolution and the sedimentology of the Bermejo River in Argentina, a comparison of the hydraulic geometry of fluvial and submarine channels, and an assessment of the utility of the Hilbert-Huang method for analyzing turbulent velocity signals.
