My research interests are broadly centered around sedimentation and landscape evolution in Miocene and younger, tectonically active regions. In a narrower sense, I seek to understand how the depositional products and morphological features of modern marginal marine environments can be applied to ancient settings to reconstruct the paleoenvironments and tectonic evolution of a region.

My work is accomplished primarily via field-based geologic mapping, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and structural geology. Additionally, I utilize statistical analysis and numerical modeling of remotely sensed morphological features to shed light on landscape evolution.
