Research Interests 

My research is focused on river and floodplain dynamics and the interactions between geomorphic processes and ecological processes (e.g., large wood storage and transport, carbon storage, and riparian vegetation dynamics). I am particularly interested in the influence of river and floodplain processes on the flux and storage of organic carbon; interactions between downed large wood, vegetation, and geomorphic processes; river and floodplain dynamics in the Sub-Arctic and Arctic; and coupled natural-human systems research related to rivers. My research topics of interest include fluvial geomorphology, ecogeomorphology, the carbon cycle, water resources management, and coupled natural-human systems.
