Biography
I'm a geomorphologist and glacial geologist with my PhD from University of Washington and a BS in physics from University of Maryland-College Park. For research, I've also worked in Alaska and worked and lived Germany. In my spare time, I race bikes and cross-country ski.
Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests

Teaching Interests

I'm interested in incorporating best practice pedagogy into traditional geology courses. Most of my courses are focused on processed-based approaches to geological problems, such as geomorphology and glacial geology.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on how glaciers influence topography. My work has ranged from mountainous, currently glaciated settings in Alaska to the local SE, postglacial Wisconsin topography. I am interested in quantitative and field-based approaches to landscape evolution.

Consulting Interests
