Dr. Brigid Lynch is a geomorphologist and hydrologist with expertise in quantitative landscape evolution modeling paired with high-resolution climatic datasets. Brigid earned her Ph.D. in geomorphology and landscape evolution from Indiana University. Her dissertation covered a wide array of research, including coupling landscape evolution, hydrologic, and climate models, building dynamic channel evolution models, and collecting river sand samples in southern Peru used to date channel incision (and mountain uplift) in the Andes. Brigid also brings extensive GIS experience to Balance, having used geospatial data to map geomorphic metrics, assess geologic hazards, and extract watershed and channel morphology. When Brigid’s not in the office, she’s likely trying out a new recipe in the kitchen while attempting to avoid stepping on her senior (and very large) dog, Toby, who likes to lay nearby to clean up any spills.
