Biography

I am a sedimentologist and geomorphologist with expertise on early Earth's rivers and remote sensing of modern and ancient sedimentary basins. My research is mostly field-based, with study areas located in the Canadian Arctic, the Great Basin of western US, and the North American Cordillera. My research also involves geophysical modelling aimed at resolving watershed biogeochemistry and surface processes of early Earth and Mars.
