My research interests lie at the crossroads of several disciplines that can generally be classified as watershed science. Specifically, my research program includes development of water and sediment budgets, sediment transport processes and sediment fingerprinting, linking fluvial and hillslope geomorphology, quantitative landscape morphometric analysis, dissolved organic matter production and transport through watersheds, light penetration in fluvial systems, and application of terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides to study Earth-surface processes and long-term landscape change.
