I study neotectonics, including both active faulting and tectonic geomorphology, fluvial geomorphology, and Quaternary geology. Most of my research, and that of my students, has concentrated on the last three topics below in recent years. Research areas include:
Tectonic geomorphology of the active
Fault segmentation, in the
Proglacial lakes and post-glacial incision,
River responses to human and natural modifications, especially in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
Flood frequency of the
