Christine L. May

 

Research interests:  Primary interests are in interdisciplinary research that focuses on the interactions between physical and biological processes in river systems.  Specifically, I am exploring hydrologic and geomorphic processes that shape river systems, and investigating the linkages between hillslope and fluvial processes.  Of particular interest is the effect of vegetation changes on the frequency and magnitude of sediment fluxes, and how these processes affect habitat for freshwater fishes.
