Research

David’s research group focuses on the understanding of river and floodplain ecosystems from a hydro-geomorphological perspective. Specific areas of interest include river channel change, river typing, channel change and vegetation patch dynamics and the application of airborne remote sensing to river and floodplain environments. Currently research includes, airborne remote sensing of river corridors, geomorphic response and biotic recovery of engineered channels, floodplain landscape diversity, assessment of the impact of beaver re-introduction, and functioning of the hyporheic zone.
