Franklin Heitmuller, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, Department of Geography and Geology
My research focuses on fluvial and coastal geomorphic systems of the northern Gulf Coast. I have investigated a number of river systems from Mexico to Mississippi that have been impacted by anthropogenic controls, including reservoirs, aggregate extraction, and land use. I have recently initiated research efforts to collect and interpret data associated with coastal sediment transport, with an emphasis on estuarine marshes and shorelines.
