Research Interests

Landscape change in the Anthropocene Remote Sensing Scientific communication and education

Research and Activities

My research interests lie in coastal sediments – their origins and fates. Marshes act as metronomes of sea-level rise, recording changes in inundation within their soils. By tracking the pace of North Carolina’s rapidly shifting wetlands through time and space, I aim to better explain feedbacks between topography and sedimentation. Which areas of our coast are naturally resilient to rising tides – and how can these areas inform preservation efforts?
