My research is driven by an overarching interest in abiotic vs. biotic, lithologic and climatic controls on bedrock to soil conversion and – ultimately – how those factors control landscape evolution. I am studying with Josh Roering at the University of Oregon. You can find more details on my research and interests by clicking on the tabs in the upper right hand part of this page.
I was recently awarded an NSF EAR postdoctoral fellowship for my for cross-Critical Zone Observatory proposal: Cracking the critical zone: Tree roots in fractures and a proposed mechanistic soil production function. For more details on my future research click here.
