Current Research Interests

Studies of crustal deformation and accompanying landscape evolution have captivated my attention for the last two decades and continue to inspire my future research directions. My research can be divided generally into two interrelated themes: 1) Deformation of the continental lithosphere, with emphasis on convergent orogenic settings and 2) the geomorphic response to tectonic forcing.

I use a variety of observational and analytical techniques to study these topics including geologic/geomorphic field mapping and surveys of geomorphic landforms, analysis of digital topography, low-temperature thermochronometry of bedrock and detrital minerals ((U-Th)/He dating in particular) and geochronology techniques, and numerical simulations of landscape evolution.
