I am a Professor in the Department of Geosciences at Colorado State University. My research interest is in fluvial geomorphology, broadly focused on drainage basin response and recovery following disturbances, the timing of arroyo incision and floodplain forest establishment, the effects of invasive vegetation removal on channel morphology, and glacial valley bottom evolution. Current research with my graduate students includes work in the Upper Colorado, North St. Vrain, Big Thompson, Cache la Poudre River, and Yampa River watersheds in CO. I am also working with students on the controls on mass movement occurrence and the effects of climate change in Denali National Park and Preserve AK, and drainage basin response to climate warming, Alto Adige basin, Italy.
