I am a physical geographer working to improve digital methods for mapping soil. My interest in this work stems from a concern about water issues (quality & quantity) and sustainability of land use practices, particularly food production. The topics of landscape evolution, geomorphology, and environmental science are integral to my research. I enjoy working with geographic information systems and have used this skill to improve understanding of our natural environment. My current research focuses on the use of digital terrain analysis and other non-invasive data collection techniques to predict the spatial distribution of erosion/deposition processes, redoximorphic processes, and soil carbon.
In addition to having a PhD in Geography, I am also a certified Geographic Information Systems Professional (GISP).
