My general interest in the Earth Sciences focuses on the topic of "surficial processes," a study of the physical and chemical processes that occur near the earth&39;s surface. The interdisciplinary nature of the discipline is reflected in my training, as I have degrees in both Physical Geography (MS) and Geology (Ph.D). I have been conducting climate and geomorphological research in polar regions for the past 30 years, with continuous funding from the National Science Foundation. I have published over 100 research articles, books and book chapters, serve on several editorial boards, and I am past-President of the United States Permafrost Association.
