My research focuses on sediment transport processes and their role in the restoration and management of rivers and their watersheds. My current projects include defining instream flows on the Diamond Fork River, Utah, and developing a reduced complexity model to explore options to reduce sediment loading in the Blue Earth Watershed, Minnesota. I teach courses on sediment transport mechanics and, with Patrick Belmont and Tyler Allred, teach a one-week summer short course Sediment Transport in Stream Channel Assessment and Design.
