RESEARCH SYNOPSIS

My research focuses on leveraging remote sensing and machine learning to characterize and map the geologic substrates and geomorphology of offshore and coastal zones in the Great Lakes. Two of my key research goals are to better understand the interaction between coastal and offshore geomorphic processes and to quantify how these processes affect habitat availability and suitability for several native and invasive mussel and fish species.
