I'm a PhD student in the Earth & Planetary Sciences Department at UC Santa Cruz.  I study the history and mechanisms of movement for slow-moving landslides, called earthflows. My work combines field monitoring, remote sensing, and spatial analyses of earthflows in the California Coast Ranges.


For my master's work at the  University of New Mexico, I focused on the relative roles of climate versus tectonics in shaping the distinctive bedrock canyons and basalt-capped mesas of the U.S. southern High Plains.
