Students: I am almost always looking for enthusiastic students broadly interested in Earth Surface Processes. A strong quantitative background is preferred. Please see the Research and Publications pages for a sample of past and current projects, and I am always excited to discuss new ideas. PSU graduate students are supported by competitively awarded teaching and research assistantships.
