I’m interested in the processes that shape the surface of the Earth, and in the archives they leave in the geological record. In particular, I work on understanding what information about past environments is captured and can be reconstructed, and what is lost. I’ve worked on many different surface processes, including rivers, hillslopes, floods, glacial & icy landscapes, sediment fans, and river deltas, and also have research interests on the other worlds of our solar system.
I use a lot of numerical modelling in my work, and am a key developer of Landlab, a Python-based, open-source software toolkit for modelling Earth surface processes: http://landlab.github.io.
