Glacial and Quaternary Geology
Sedimentology and Stratigraphy
Hello and welcome to my page. I am a geoscientist with diverse research interests grounded in some combination of meteorology/climatology, hydrology, geomorphology, sedimentary geology, soil science and ecology/paleoecology. The path I have taken to where I am today is rather meandering (no pun intended). I completed my Ph.D. in Geology, with a focus in Quaternary and sedimentary geology, at West Virginia University in 2006.
I have broad research interests in modern and ancient climate, fluvial and glacial systems. My current research themes include: (1) Sedimentary records of Quaternary glaciation, environments/climates, and, fluvial processes and responses of the Great Lakes region, the Ohio River Basin and southern Alaska, (2) Historic climate coupling with the Hydrosphere and the Cryosphere in eastern North America and southern Alaska, and (3) the geoarchaeology of river basins in eastern North America.
