about me

I am a quantitative, data-driven geomorphologist with current work centered on two topics:

  1. 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?
  2. 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.
