Dr. Vogt joined UCCS as Assistant Professor in 2009. He earned a BS from the University of Missouri and MA and PhD from Arizona State University. Brandon's research and teaching interests rest in geomorphology, geomorphometry, lightning / landscape interactions, and undergraduate curriculum development.
His research in recent years has focused on using geospatial techniques to map and model the spatio-temporal patterns of lightning across Colorado. Also, he is working on a project that describes how geography field courses can be taught to include high impact educational practices. Brandon runs the Geomorphology Research Lab, a place well-equipped for collaborative, multi-disciplinary research in the physical sciences.
