Areas of interest
Brendan is a physical watershed scientist, specializing in geomorphology. His research focuses on the physical and coupled ecological dynamics of river systems, and includes studies of climatic controls on landscape evolution, watershed-scale sediment dynamics, and modeling population responses to environmental disturbance. Brendan’s multidisciplinary work involves collaborations with ecologists and engineers, as well as regular engagement with natural resource managers. He has a particular interest in post-wildfire erosion and modeling the associated sediment-related risks to downstream assets, such as water supply reservoirs and aquatic habitat.
Further information on Brendan's research can be found on his website.
