I study fluvial geomorphology, with emphasis on sediment transport and human impacts on rivers and fluvial landforms. Recent studies focus on the effects of dams and dam removal on rivers, novel methods for measuring and modeling river bank erosion, documenting sediment residence times using fallout radionuclide tracers, and quantifying temporal scales of fine-grained sediment transport and storage through watersheds using sediment budget data and mathematical models.
