Polar regions, aeolian processes and geomorphology, phosphorus cycling

PhD, Dartmouth College, 2017

I study landscape change in cold regions using a wide range of scientific methods, including remote sensing, photogrammetry, lichenometry, and soil nutrient analysis. My interests include high-latitude and high-elevation aeolian processes and geomorphology, coupled biogeochemical cycles, biological soil crusts, and the impacts of climate change on polar and alpine regions.
