Trained as a geographer, my research focuses on geomorphic effects of urbanization, urban hydrology, stream bank erosion processes, interaction of stream banks and bryophytes, ecological effects of intensive agricultural practices, effects of check dams, and fluvial dynamics in low order streams. It involves a suite of field work, environmental statistics, geospatial tools, and spatial modeling along with strong interdisciplinary collaborations. My collaborators include geologists, biologists, agricultural engineers, cultural geographers, sociologists, and agricultural geographers. I have research projects in Chesapeake Bay System, Upper Mississippi River Basin, Shiwalik Foothills of Indian Himalayas, Central Punjab (India), and Red-bed Plains of Oklahoma. My research projects are supported by competitive external funding from the National Science Foundation as well as internal funding from my institution. During my free time, I like to explore small urban streams.
