In the applied context, my research is concerned with how we can assess, rehabilitate, and restore river systems at a variety of scales for aquatic organisms. Simply put, can we take the knowledge gained from functional river systems to create and rehabilitate degraded systems?

I have over 16 years of industry experience in performing hydraulic, hydrodynamic, and sediment transport modeling as well as numerous design projects on rivers such as the Merced, Lower American, Trinity, Napa, Stanislaus, and Yuba Rivers as well as numerous smaller creeks and streams.
These are some of the broad areas related to river restoration that I practice:
