Landscapes record the history of erosion, so it's sometimes possible to understand the rate and magnitude of erosion processes using geomorphology. Erosion is usually most dynamic in steep, rugged, landscapes, so as a geomorphologist I'm particularly drawn to high-mountain regions. I'm currently focused on tropical mountains, specifically those that show signs of past ice erosion. My work uses a combination of terrrestrial cosmogenic nuclide methods and remote sensing to describe the timing and process of glacial erosion in these landscapes.
