My research focuses on surface proceses in watershed, coastal, and marine realms. I am chiefly driven to perform research that both involves students and helps inform environmental decision making or enviromental policy. Fluvial geomorphology, river restoration, and watershed management are key parts of my applied terrestrial work. Offshore, I am affiliated with the CSUMB seafloor mapping lab, interpreting canyon processes from time-series of submarine canyon morphology. We are also monitoring the seacliff evolution and coastal retreat along southern Monterey Bay to help inform coastal management policy.
