Physical Geography, Sediment Transport


My research focuses on sediment transport under the influence of changing lake levels and storms in the Great Lakes region across decadal and seasonal timescales. The purpose of this research is to understand beach erosion and growth during periods of change in order to better inform communities for their coastal management projects. I am also interested in bridging the gap in knowledge between geologic and historical records of sediment transport using modeling and field data.
