Research and/or Teaching Area: Hydrology and Geomorphology, Rivers
My research is in hydrology and fluvial geomorphology, with emphasis on river processes, river restoration, and water resources management. Previously I was Co-Lead of the Water Science program at California State University, Northridge. I was a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley in 2014 where I worked with the UC Berkeley Riverlab on topics in fluvial geomorphology related to gravel bars. I completed my PhD at the University of California Santa Barbara (2013), and received an M.A. at Brown University (2005) and a B.S. at Cornell University (2003). My teaching and research is focused on understanding river mechanics, quantifying the effects of human activities to rivers, and adapting to freshwater challenges in unexpected ways.
