Research Interests

Trained in physical geography with a focus on fluvial geomorphology, but a penchant for human geography.  My thesis work explores the geomorphic impacts of a dam removal on a local southern Appalachian river system.  I am also developing an online application to map dam removals across North America to allow policymakers, stakeholders, and engineers to better plan for future removal projects.
