I study the interactions between tectonic, lithological, climatic, and surface processes and their individual contributions to the evolution of landscapes in mountains above subduction zones as well as in intraplate settings! I also study the relationships between landscape evolution and biodiversity in the Amazon.


• New review paper out in SCIENCE!  Human impacts outpace natural processes in the Amazon

• I recently moved to Queens College, City University of New York as an Assistant Professor! 

• Have you heard about DELTA H?! We're building a vibrant and inclusive community of Geomorphology and Landscape Evolution in Brazil. Come be a part of it! Go to:

• Brazilian and South American students: come be a part of the landscape evolution group at Queens College! Get in touch!

I am looking for undergraduate and graduate students to join my group to work on one of several projects in landscape evolution. If you're interested, get in touch!
