I am a fluvial geomorphologist interested in how rivers respond to landuse and environmental changes. My research group is conducting laboratory experiments and field studies as part of a larger effort to improve our understanding of stream channel (in)stability, fish habitat and bed material transport. In particular, we are focussing on the influence of disturbances such as forest fire on channel morphodynamics, the effect of large wood on sediment transport dynamics and the influence of hydropower generation on stream channel processes. I am also interested in the broader set of processes controlling landscape characteristics.
