The lab group spans a range of interests in modern and ancient sediment transport systems. The following are a selection of current research topics we are working on, or are interested in pursuing. If you have interests in these topics, I encourage you to contact me about student opportunities or collaboration possibilities.

Bedform dynamics and stratigraphic geometries (NSF EPSCoR Award #2032910)

Grain size fining along delta fronts (Sarah Noel, current M.S. student project, American Chemical Society PRF# 60151-DNI8)

Sediment transport dynamics and channel levee construction (Myk Amos, current M.S. student project)

Distributary channel network growth and preservation

Precambrian river and and basin dynamics

Flow and sediment dynamics in flexible emergent vegetation (Leah Tevis past undergraduate research project)

Three-dimensional bedform morphometrics: Quantifying bedform variability

(Aries Bush past undergraduate research project)

Sediment routing and advection settling in engineered spillways (Madeline Cross and Miles Beech current undergraduate project. Collaborative with A. Fernandes, A. Abeyta, T. Swanson, NSF Award # 2005439)
