Research and Activities
My research broadly aims to explore and explain the complex evolution of coastal barrier systems and the key feedbacks and mechanisms that give rise to it, primarily through the development of exploratory models. My most recent work has focused on understanding the impacts of ecomorphodynamic couplings in barrier, marsh, and bay evolution, and how interactions between adjacent and non-adjacent parts of the coastal system can impact the evolution landscape as a whole.
