Research

I apply geomorphology and geochronology to answer questions about the evolution of the earth.

I am particularly interested in glaciation, and how changing patterns of glaciation both reflect and affect the earth system.

Landscape evolution in the Himalaya

Utilizing paired measurements of summit weathering and basin denudation, I evaluated long-term relief production in the Ladakh Himalaya of northwestern India.

Climate and tectonics in the Alps

A basic geomorphic analysis revealed a correlation between cirque floor elevations, present climate, and deeply-exhumed rocks within the southern European Alps.
