Biography

Edward is from Acworth, GA and attended Louisiana State University for his BS in environmental geology before coming to UK for his graduate studies. He was originally a biochemistry major but switched to geoscience after discovering the excitement of studying landscape evolution. Some of the notable places he has visited for geological work are Big Bend National Park, Mammoth Cave National Park, Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve, Golden Gate Canyon State Park, and the Pantanal Matogrossense National Park (Brazil). For his MS degree and now his PhD, his research is focused on understanding sedimentary processes in the world's largest wetland and the impacts of these processes on ecosystem services. His research interests are broadly in sedimentology, wetlands, and geomorphology in the tropics.

Graduate Training

PhD in progress at UK with support of the NSF GRFP. Anticipated completion in 2022.
