My research centers on:
- Climate change analysis and adaptation in high mountain environments.
- Alpine protection and restoration.
- Program design, management, and implementation.
- Applied, management-oriented field research (physical and social sciences).
- Monitoring and evaluation methods.
- Parks and protected areas.
See more about HiMAP's work with assessment of glacial lakes and climate adaptation in these videos:
- Lake 464 (2010)
- Global Glacial Lake Partnership (2011)
- High Mountain Glacial Watershed Program (2012)
- High Mountain Adaptation Partnership (2013)
See a photo exhibit about changing Himalayan glaciers on the American Alpine Club website.
Thinking about graduate school?
Undertaking a graduate degree can be an exciting and challenging step toward the pursuit of mountain geography as a career. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to accept graduate students into research positions at this time. However, I would highly recommend that you investigate other faculty at INSTAAR and in the Geography department at CU Boulder, and contact firstname.lastname@example.org at INSTAAR for information regarding programs with an interest in mountain geography.
