Research Interests

Patrick’s dissertation research investigates controls on Holocene landscape evolution in the Great Plains and South Texas. His work uses a variety of methods to historical chronologies, which help to determine how present-day geomorphology interacts with controls to produce the modern landscape. In addition, he has ongoing research activities with similar objectives at White Sands, New Mexico, Pismo Beach, California, and Berea, Kentucky.
