Mentorship

Throughout my PhD and postdoctoral research I have had the opportunity to work with numerous students and mentees. Below is a list of some of the most recent:

_____________________________________________________________________________________________

 

Meghan King worked with me the summer and fall of 2017 as a post-Bachelors Graduate Research Assistant at Los Alamos in the lab and in the field. Meghan conducted a summer research project to examine spatial and temporal trends of stratigraphic sequences in abandoned channels on floodplains of the East River in Crested Butte, CO.

Sophie Stauffer was a post-Masters student working with Joel Rowland and I at Los Alamos National Lab from 2015-2017 to extract data from aerial imagery that we are using to create an empirical model for the occurrence of cutoffs along the East River, CO. Sophie now works for the state of New Mexico Environment Department.

Mulu Fratkin worked with me the summer of 2016 in the lab and in the field and focused on writing R code to reconstruct historic flows in the East River. He analyzed various components of the snowmelt-dominated hydrograph (e.g., the magnitude, duration, and rate of change of flow in the river) that I have used for my empirical models of river bank erosion. Mulu is now a M.S. student working in the water resources engineering program at Oregon State University.
