Research Interests: 

 I combine field, geochemical, GIS, and modeling tools to quantify rates of Earth surface change and understand how landscapes evolve. I run a cosmogenic nuclide geochemistry lab for extracting 10-Be and 26-Al for exposure dating and denudation rate measurements. Current projects involve understanding landscape response to a broad range of factors, including: mega-floods, active tectonics, agriculture, and climate.

I anticipate accepting new graduate students and possibly a postdoc to start in summer or fall 2018. Please contact me if you are interested in applying to UMass.
