I am a geomorphologist living, working, and playing in the southern Appalachian mountains. I work on problems related to the evolution of these old hills – including mass wasting processes, the role bedrock rivers play, intersections of geology and biology, and a few unique geological phenomenon like bedrock domes and fissure caves. I use GIS and code (Python, MATLAB) everywhere I can and spend many a day stomping around these mountains.
