Anderson, Sam

Research Area: Applied data science and machine learning in hydrology; the changing roles of heatwaves and glaciers for downstream water resources.

Brynes, Evan
DISC 2 108

Research Area:: Research interests broadly focus on mechanisms of animal behaviour and ecology, with a particular interest in fishes.

Carr, Julia
DISC 2 108

Research Area: Rock strength and sediment controls on bedrock river incision; sediment transport across river networks; landslide hazard and the role hillslope-channel coupling on river evolution.

Chen, Tzu-Yin

Research Area: Experimental, computational, and field morphology/morphodynamics; debris flows, channels, and fans; granular flows; dam breach hydraulics and flood routing; hazards mitigation; stochastic modeling; infrastructure design policy making


Larimer, Jefferey
DISC 2 108

Google Scholar Page

Research Area:: Jeffrey uses a variety of field, numerical, and experimental techniques to study how sediment transport and progressive failure of bedrock cooperate to shape river channel morphology, landscape evolution, and aquatic life.

Li, Tingan
DISC 2 108

Research Area: Erosion process in bedrock rivers; controls on bedrock channel morphology; boundary roughness and shear stress in bedrock canyons; landscape evolution.

Pleizier, Naomi
DISC 2 108

Research Area: Naomi is interested in the mechanisms by which environmental factors, such as flow and temperature, impact fish health and survival.


Research Area: The application of machine learning models to address critical environmental challenges such as biodiversity conservation and environmental monitoring.

Thompson, Peter

Research Area: Peter is interested in identifying the environmental and anthropogenic drivers of movement and space use for southern resident killer whales in the Salish Sea.

University Research Associates
