From rock to roll

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.

Fully-funded MS project on the Buffalo River (Fall, 2022 start). Applications being accepted this summer. See the opportunities page for more information.

Recent press on the Marshalling Science lab group’s ongoing work quantifying how trees and ice turn rock into sediment.

For even more details on my research – check out the 2018 AGU Sharp Lecture. You can hear a 20 minute oral interview on my journey from waitress to community college to some of what I do today here.
