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 effects of invasive vegetation establishment and removal on channel morphology, and glacial valley bottom evolution. Current research with my graduate students includes work in the Upper Colorado River and Cache la Poudre River watersheds in CO. I am also working with my students in Big Bend National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park on biophysical feedbacks and river restoration using beaver mimicry to reconnect channels and floodplains, respectively.
