Our research focuses on fluvial-hydraulic processes in river systems. We use the term river systems to emphasize the importance of linking measurements from one scale to the next in order to develop a more complete understanding of the coupling between rivers and their surrounding landscapes. Field work is an important component of our research. We work mostly in Colorado and Utah, but have also worked in Alaska, California, and the Pacific Northwest. The links below will take you to descriptions of on-going or recently-completed projects, plus contact information for the students involved.
