My research over the last 15 years has covered a rather wide range of topics. Two broad categories are (1) hydrology & hydraulics and (2) the interaction of topography, wind, and raptor flight. I am particularly interested in topography and its influence on natural phenomena, whether flow of rivers or flight of eagles. Much of my research is curiosity-driven, and I enjoy working with colleagues outside engineering. For example, recently Mike Butler (Biology) and I worked on the problem of windows and bird collisions on our campus, and Dru Germanoski (Geol) and I are co-leading a long-term project on the dynamics of Bushkill Creek before, during, and after dam removal. As part of this effort I am involved in a collaborative digital humanities project to document a century of change along nearby Bushkill Creek.
