Biography

Andrew Wilcox is a professor in the Department of Geosciences at the University of Montana, director of the University of Montana River Center, and codirector of a graduate training program on Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water Systems. Dr. Wilcox is a geomorphologist whose research entails field studies and modeling of river flow, sediment transport, and channel morphology, which he in turn seeks to relate to aquatic ecosystem processes, disturbances, and watershed management. His research focuses on quantifying sediment balances, particularly with respect to geomorphic responses to dam construction and removal; feedbacks between riparian vegetation and morphodynamics; and application of geomorphic principles to river restoration. Dr. Wilcox completed a B.A. at Stanford University; an M.S. at the University of California, Berkeley; a Ph.D. at Colorado State University; and a postdoctoral associate position with the U.S. Geological Survey.
