My research is driven by an overarching interest in abiotic vs. biotic, lithologic and climatic controls on bedrock to soil conversion and – ultimately – how those factors control landscape evolution. I work at scales ranging from the grain to continental and frequently combine field observations with theoretical and numerical modeling.
Recent press on the Marshalling Science lab group’s ongoing work quantifying how trees and ice turn rock into sediment.
