“My research task is to advance our fundamental understanding of rivers for the purpose of mitigating human impacts on stream morphology and ecology. My directions include: (1) Probabilistic modeling of sediment transport at the grain scale in gravel bed streams; and (2) Detailed measurement of particle kinematics at the grain scale in experimental flume studies. In these studies I utilize techniques from machine learning, computer vision, stochastic processes, and granular physics. My research trajectory within the Hassan group is to upscale and articulate our process based understanding of mountain streams to provide a basis for researchers to improve technical approaches of ecological restoration and the sustainable development of stream corridors.”
