Associate Professor Coastal Geography


Curriculum Vitae

Director, Arctic Coastal Geoscience Lab

I am a coastal geographer and educator applying the principles of geomorphology and stratigraphy; integrated with high resolution geophysical, geospatial, and sedimentary tools to research and educate about earth surface processes: specifically related to the coastal response to climate change, natural hazards, and human impacts. My current research focus is understanding how a warming Arctic climate is impacting the coastlines and people of the circumpolar north. I am also using sediment cores to develop paleo-proxy records of past storm impacts spanning multiple spatial and temporal scales.
