My research is focused on sediment transport and sedimentology, and the physics linking sediment transport, sediment grain size, and channel morphology in rivers.  Much of my work over the past decade has been on developing new methods for making continuous measurements of suspended-sediment transport and grain size in rivers.

Most relevant publications:

Sediment supply versus local hydraulic controls on sediment transport and storage in a river with large sediment loads(2015)

Long-term continuous acoustical suspended-sediment measurements in rivers - Theory, application, bias, and error (2016)

Geomorphic change and sediment transport during a small artificial flood in a transformed post-dam delta: The Colorado River delta, United States and Mexico (2017)
