Hi! My name is Julia Cisneros
I am an NSF Postdoc currently affiliated with three Texan Universities to study the morphodynamics of sand dunes in deserts and rivers. I received my PhD from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and a B.S. from Texas A&M University. My interests include sedimentology, surface processes, and bedform morphology and dynamics. My PhD research focused on understanding the morphology and dynamics of dunes in alluvial channels. Part of this work revealed the shape of dunes in the worlds big rivers and was published in Nature Geoscience.
In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my dog whether that be sitting on the porch, going for a hike, or taking long naps.
