I am a quantitative, data-driven geomorphologist with current work centered on two topics:
- Prediction in Geomorphology — Can we predict the dynamics of geomorphic systems? Will machine learning and data-driven methods help? How can machine learning work with geomorphology models?
- Human-Landscape Systems — What are the signatures of human-landscape couplings? How do these systems fail and recover?
Thus far I work primarily in coastal landscapes, using techniques from machine learning, nonlinear dynamics, numerical modeling, data-driven science, and scientific computing to address these topics. You can check out some my research here.
I also maintain a blog dedicated to my growing interest in scholarly communication in the earth sciences.
