My primary research interests rest in geomorphology, geomorphometry, terrestrial lidar, and lightning. I blend these interests as I explore interactions between natural / physical processes and complex landsurfaces. A secondary research area involves developing and assessing undergraduate geography curriculum.
In 2013, I am working on a project that uses lightning activity as a proxy to understand summertime atmospheric dynamics in Colorado's mountains. Also, I am investigating rock weathering process dominance in local sandstone exposures. Last, I am working on a project that explores the usefulness of rock glaciers as geoindicators of environmental change.
