Hydrology and Ecohydrology
Sedimentology and Stratigraphy
Hello and welcome to my page. I am a geoscientist with diverse research interests grounded in some combination of meteorology/climatology, hydrology, geomorphology, sedimentary geology, soil science, ecology/biogeography and archaeology. The path I have taken to where I am today is rather meandering (no pun intended). I completed my Ph.D. in Geology, with a focus in Quaternary and sedimentary geology, at West Virginia University in 2006.
I have primary research interests in modern and ancient climate, fluvial, glacial, lacustrine and periglacial systems. Geoarchaeology, biogeography and paleoecology are additional interests. My current research themes include: (1) Terrestrial sedimentary records of glaciation, paleoclimate, fluvial processes and responses, and landscape ecology; (2) Historic climate coupling with the Hydrosphere and Cryosphere; and (3) the use of paleoenvironmental reconstructions to better inform wetland, river and ecological restoration efforts.
