Brandon J. Vogt

Brandon VogtDr. Vogt joined UCCS in as Assistant Professor of Geography in 2009. He earned a BS from the University of Missouri and MA and PhD from Arizona State University. His research interests rest in geomorphology, geomorphometry, terrestrial lidar, and lightning / landscape interactions. Brandon blends these interests as he explores interactions between natural / physical processes and landsurface textures.

He runs the Geomorphology Research Lab, a place well-equipped for collaborative, multi-disciplinary research in the physical sciences.

Brandon teaches courses in introductory geospatial technologies, physical geography, geomorphology, geographic information systems (GIS), snowpack assessment, and co-teach a humanities course that blends sound and landscape.

In 2015, Dr. Vogt is working on a project that uses lightning activity as a proxy to understand summertime atmospheric dynamics in Colorado, and a project that uses rock glaciers as geoindicators of environmental change in Colorado's San Juan Mountains. Brandon enjoys music, mountains, thunderstorms, snow, sandstone, photography, traveling, coffee, and just about anything Colorado.
