Research

The Earth surface is the interface between exogenic and endogenic forces; it is the template and product of water and material fluxes; and habitat of life. The overarching goal of my research is to improve our understanding about how processes shape the Earth surface, and how they affect and interact with human activity. In particular, I am interested in environmental changes and high magnitude-low frequency events and their role in landscape evolution on a variety of spatial and temporal scales, in the past and today. My interdisciplinary and collaborative research approach combines geomorphological and sedimentological field work, geodesy and geomorphometry, as well as statistical and physics-based modelling. Besides its scientific goals, my research aims to inform land use planning about potentially adverse effects of Earth surface processes, and the sustainable usage of water and soil resources.
