Research interests: In my research, I focus on short-term changes in the form and character of rivers. I am interested in the effect of flooding on rivers on human timescales: what are the immediate impacts and how does the disturbance have a legacy in the system after several years have passed? These questions lead me to investigate the changing shape of rivers, the fate of the sediment that is transported or stored on their beds, and the rapid and/or steady erosion of the hillsides that are adjacent to them.
