I enjoy doing all sorts of things outdoors

including research, teaching, and nordic skiing. That's me in Falls Creek, Australia before the 42km Hoppett race.

Paul Bierman, Geomorphologist and Geochemist

I am a Geomorphologist with wide-ranging interests including isotope geochemistry, surface processes, human-induced landscape change, and rates of erosion. I am particularly interested in working at the interface between active research, education, and science literacy at all levels -- thus my involvement in the Governor's Institutes of Vermont (a residential program for high school science students) and NSF's Career and DTS programs combining research and education.
