About

I study sediment transport processes and landscape evolution using laboratory experiments, computational physics simulations, and probabilistic models. Currently I am focused on (1) laboratory experiments on the erosion processes of individual grains, (2) discrete element simulations of sediment transport with angular grains, and (3) statistical physics modeling of sediment transport rates and individual particle trajectories. This research targets a more complete understanding of the basic physics governing landscape evolution on Earth and other planets.
