Research interests: Sediment transport, erosion and wildfire
Within the SBC LTER my research focuses on sediment-mass transport and erosion in the Santa Ynez foothills. In particular, I am interested in the detailed erosional response to heavy rainfalls and wildfires in the Mission and Rattlesnake Canyons. For this study, I am employing airborne and ground-based LiDAR (LIght Detection And Ranging) measurements, as well as other field-based and laboratory measurements.
