Function and Responsibilities:

Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) Postdoctoral Fellow

Research Interests:

I am interested in understanding the spatial and temporal patterns of Earth surface processes in orogenic landscapes. I use field-based observations, laboratory analyses, and a variety of geochronology tools (cosmogenic nuclides, water chemistry, low-temperature thermochronology) to understand the links between denudation processes and landscape evolution, orogen kinematics, and the carbon cycle.
